In the bustling city of Melbourne, a remarkable event took place – the Women In Seafood Australasia (WISA) & Stay Afloat Network Event. This article is a journey through this exceptional event, sharing insights, experiences, and heartfelt gratitude for the event.
What WISA is about
Women in Seafood Australasia (WISA) is the only national organisation representing women working in the seafood industry. WISA is a unique network covering the tough world of commercial fishing and aquaculture, postharvest, cutting edge research, policy and resource management.
The seafood industry is often seen as male-dominated, but the Women In Seafood Australasia (WISA) & Stay Afloat Network Event in Melbourne was a testament to the remarkable women who have contributed significantly to this dynamic field and the supportive men in seafood who want to see women succeed & increase their role & presence.
Celebrating Extraordinary Women
Beyond the shimmering oceans and seafood on our plates, the event was a heartfelt celebration of the extraordinary women who have made the seafood industry what it is today. Their dedication and hard work were honoured in a memorable way.
The event wasn’t just about celebration; it was also about fostering collaboration. The seafood industry thrives on partnerships and knowledge exchange. This gathering encouraged camaraderie and innovation.
