A couple of messages from WISTA Switzerland before we take a break:

1/ WISTA Survey

Thank you for supporting our efforts in making trading and shipping more equal industries.
We are happy to announce the launch of our survey on Gender Equality in the Trading, Logistics, and Maritime Sectors, which we are doing together with PWC Switzerland.  This survey is focused solely on Switzerland and it will help us to better understand perceptions of gender equality and women’s representation in these sectors. We welcome responses from both employers, and employees of any gender, level and function. We aim to finalize the survey and announce the results along with some debate around them in 2022.

Please do take a moment to respond to the survey either following this link or QR code:
