Owit History


Established in 1989 at an inaugural board meeting held in Los Angeles, OWIT International is a voluntary non-profit professional of women and men involved/interested in international trade and business.

OWIT International serves as the unifying body of a growing network of chapters located in the Americas, Europe, and Africa. It also supports a virtual chapter for individuals involved in international trade and business who do not have access to a local OWIT International chapter where they reside or work.

Membership in a local or the virtual chapter gives automatic access to the OWIT International network.

OWIT International’s values and philosophy embrace its mission statement: United around the globe to foster international trade and the advancement of women in business.
