Wiggin and Dana Sponsors Women's International Shipping & Trading Association's Annual Conference
On April 25, 2019, Joe Grasso and Susan Kennedy attended the opening reception for WISTA’s (Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association) Annual General Meeting & Conference in Philadelphia, held in conjunction with the Annual Dinner of the Ports of Philadelphia. Wiggin was also a sponsor for the event. WISTA is an international networking organization that promotes diversity in the maritime, trading and logistics sectors by providing women with a platform to connect, collaborate and communicate on important professional issues. The theme of the meeting this year was “Women Making Waves,” to celebrate the great strides that women continue to make in business and society. The conference was held in Philadelphia this year in part because the WISTA chapter of Delaware River & Bay is the newest U.S. chapter of WISTA; and the local chapter as well as national leaders of WISTA greatly appreciated Wiggin’s sponsorship and attendance at the event. It was an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new contacts, as well as to promote Wiggin’s Philadelphia presence and experience with maritime matters.
