Ms. Sumiit Sharma who is currently the Head : Client Relations, Marketing & Regional Head – North India at Logistics Kart India Pvt. Ltd., said, “WISTA is a fantastic global platform for women in shipping. The launch of the Delhi sub chapter was a significant milestone for WISTA India in January 2014, and a momentous occasion for me as well, giving me the golden opportunity to strive for a cause that I feel so strongly about.
Taking the baton from Sanjam, my vision for WISTA India is offcourse to grow the WISTA’s presence in India through launch of sub chapters in new cities/ territories. In order to do that, it is important to articulate the value of being a part of this association to every new and existing member.
Being a part of WISTA is like being an agent of change for women in the maritime sector, encouraging their potential to take greater leadership roles in the industry and reach higher levels of responsibility in their profession, while contributing to the progress and prosperity of their families and communities.
Sanjam has worked very hard to build WISTA India into a superior networking platform for women to expand and improve opportunities for growth through the exchange of knowledge and expertise. She encourages leadership and advocate responsible action to address the well-being of women as entrepreneurs and as professionals.
With her as a role model and an inspiration, I wish to increase the footprint of WISTA India through 2 key elements (aside from business networking) – Learning & Development, Social Outreach/ well being. This can be done through collaborations with likeminded organisations that share the essence of women welfare and prosperity.”
