WISTA is an international organisation for women in management positions involved in the maritime transportation business and related trades worldwide.  It is a major player in attracting more women to the industry and in supporting women in management positions.  With networking, education and mentoring as their focus, they seek to enhance members' competence and empower career success.  

WISTA Cayman launched with its first meeting on 29 August 2014 at the offices of international law firm, Maples and Calder.

The local membership comprises a cross section of members who have already significantly contributed to the enhancement of the local maritime industry.  The newly elected board of directors include: Sherice Arman of Maples and Calder (President), Dorisley Jackson of the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR) (Secretary), Vangie Hunter of Hyde Agencies (Treasurer), Exie Tomlinson-Panton (CISR), Lorna Washington (CISR), and Natasha Bunting (Cayman Management).

WISTA Cayman President, Sherice Arman is looking forward to the challenge of taking the helm of this new organisation in Cayman.  "It is an exciting opportunity to lead a group of professional women who have dedicated their careers to the development of the jurisdiction's shipping industry.  The enthusiasm within this group is overwhelming and we are already preparing to tackle a long list of goals that we want to accomplish," she said.

The Cayman chapter will be introduced at the next WISTA AGM in Limassol, Cyprus from 8 -10 October 2014, where the President and Secretary will be in attendance.
