Today - on IMOs World Maritime Day, where the theme is “Empowering Women in the Maritime Community“ - WISTA Norway is pleased to announce that Craig Jasienski, CEO of Wallenius Wilhelmsen, is a WISTA member. 

To bring the discussion on gender equality and diversity from the problem definition phase to finding good solutions, we need to invite men to the table - and especially the male leaders of our industry. WISTA Norway therefore encourages both female and male maritime professionals to become members, the main criteria being that they want to drive diversity!
