Next session: Starts September 2024!
All signups must be received by the end of June 30th, 2024.
The maritime meet-up program creates a meeting place to connect women in the industry with experienced leaders (female & male). The aim is to support the realization of the mentees’ development aspirations through the mentor’s active listening, sharing of insights, contextualizing and exploring experienced challenges and advice, all with the maritime industry as a backdrop.
We will kick off the next program end of September 2023 at in-person events (Oslo and Bergen) and blended events for those elsewhere. Following the comments from the previous year’s program, we will introduce more structured topics and leadership development.
The WISTA Maritime Meet-up Program has been running since 2012, when it was started in collaboration with Youngship.
In Norway, WISTA membership is open to both women and men in the maritime industry, the only criteria being that the members want to contribute to increased diversity in our industry. We are working to support the industry in reaching 40 percent of women in leadership in the maritime industry by 2030.
