We had a big turnout for the «Maritime Meet-up» event which was hosted by Skuld in Oslo this evening: 60 people learned more about how to recognize and handle suppression techniques («hersketeknikker») by Hilde Sandvik - journalist and author of a book on the subject. 

There was also useful experience sharing on the subject amongst the participants; definitely an engaging topic! 

We rounded off the evening with speed dating between mentors and mentees - a collaboration between WISTA and YoungShip Oslo. We are lucky to have some experienced mentors (both male and female) in the mentor program, as well as many young, talented women who we all can learn a lot from! 

A special thanks to Skuld for great venue, food & drinks and to the WISTA board members Astrid Lillebo and Emilie Christiansen for the event organizing🙏🏻

We had a great network meeting at FJONG this evening! 

Their CEO Sigrun Syverud told us the story of how this «Airbnb» for clothing was created; through lots and lots of hard work, some help from employers and friends, as well as crowdfounding (by 80% female investors)

A «behind the scenes» tour of the day to day quality checking, cleaning and distribution of clothes also revealed that FJONG uses SINTEF developed microplastic filters when items are being washed👍

Did you know that the clothing industry pollutes more that shipping and aviation combined? 

But also, if we would all wear our clothes twice as much as we do (before buying something new) we would cut emissions from this industry by 50% 🌱

Cool girls rent!
