Over the past 12 months WINSC has started a journey – a renewal process – to better understand and respond to the needs of women in the seafood industry. We are working to create an environment that supports seafood women gain the skills and the confidence to “have a say” and act with impact – in whatever role they play.
To celebrate the launch of the Women in Seafood E-book showcasing the diversity of roles and impacts the women in our industry are having, we have invited two inspirational speakers who will share their stories and tell us – what gets them Powered Up every morning! Read More Details Here
Introduction To WINSC – 1998 Onwards
The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) was formed in 1996 by a group of women fishing in South Australia. In 1998 The Women’s Industry Network Seafood Community (WINSC) developed into a National body with organisations in each state.
WINSC is the only national organisation in Australia representing women in the Seafood Industry. It is a unique network covering the tough, high-tech world of commercial fishing, the cutting edge aquaculture, research and processing sectors and policy and resource management.
The objectives of WINSC are:
- Recognise and enhance the skills of seafood women.
- Develop effective partnerships with government agencies and other industry stakeholders.
- Take a professional approach to all activities and relationships with other stakeholders.
- Create a supportive environment to ensure women of the fishing industry reach their potential.
- Actively encourage the involvement of seafood women.
- Provide community education on all aspects of the seafood industry.
Wherever they work, WINSC builds the capacity of its seafood women to contribute to their industry.
