I'm an International Business Professional & just relocated, can OWIT help?
AN AMAZING NETWORK OF LIKE-MINDED WOMEN ACROSS THE GLOBE.
“OWIT taught me to push myself professionally by giving the opportunity to challenge what I thought I was capable of. The guidance and support I get from these ladies is paramount -- not only for professional development but also personal growth.”

“Co-hosting webinars and in-person export symposiums with OWIT chapters has widened my reach to minority women-owned businesses (MWOBs). OWIT staff are easy to collaborate with because we have the same goal: providing resources for MWOBs to scale globally.”

“I can remember starting my career in a strange town and wondering whether and how I could succeed when I found a brochure about OWIT.  What I didn’t know then but know now is that joining this organization would not only be a huge step forward in my career but also a lifetime of mentoring, partnerships and friendship that has truly enriched my world.  OWIT’s global network truly supports its members and provides an opportunity for growth no matter where one stands in their professional journey.”

“Being part of the Tampa Bay chapter of OWIT for the past year has been an empowering and eye- opening experience. As a young professional new to the world of global trade, I have found the support and knowledge I need to pave my own path. It’s a wonderful feeling to know I have not only my own chapter, but these fellow members around the world by my side as I learn and grow in my career.”

“I am glad to have found OWIT. It has presented a great networking platform for me as a woman in international trade. I have interacted with other women in business from all over the world attending the 2019 OWIT International Conference in Tampa, Florida. The women have shared new ideas and experiences being in trade. I can only hang on in anticipation. The future looks really bright!!! Honored to have been one of the speakers representing Africa.” #Yearofthewoman #OwitconTampa2019 #Nohumanislimited
