In 2012 WISTA first launched the Maritime Meet-Up, a program for networking and mentoring between WISTA Norway and
YoungShip Norway. WISTA are happy to announce that the 5th group formally kicks off in Oslo with almost 40 participants!
Join the breakfast seminar on diversity leadership
You are hereby invited to join the open breakfast seminar on diversity leadership on 22 August 2018. A seminar filled
with insights, inspiration and best-practice on how shipping companies can succeed with diversity as a tool for financial
performance and increased competitiveness.
“The mentor program really is a win-win for both parties. It is a great opportunity for the mentor to get valuable
insights on what is important to develop and retain promising young women in the maritime industry, while the
mentee gets an independent and interested conversation partner who can share their experiences”
– Annicken Kildahl, CFO Grieg Star Group
