WOMEN in LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORT
We promote the status of women in logistics and transport, to bring together those who support talent and career development of women and to provide a support network and mentoring opportunities for women in the sector.
Women in Logistics and Transport (WiLAT) was launched in June 2013 to promote our industry to female members and to encourage and support their career development. By 2018 WiLAT had over 2000 members in 20 countries and we’re still growing. Nigeria was the first to establish a women group in 2010 while the global launch of WiLAT was in Colombo in June 2013.
WiLAT are formed within CILT Territorial Organizations and Branches. In areas where CILT is not yet established WiLAT activities will be guided by the regional coordinator. Please contact your regional coordinator for more information on establishing a local group.

Entrepreneurship is powerful. By seeing opportunities and harnessing new ideas, entrepreneurs create jobs, help regions develop and grow economies.

Empowerment of women is key to a more equal future. Empowered women are able to access the tools, resources and learning that allow them to unlock their potential and choose their own destinies.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Social justice is not just about better standards for women but for all, and WiLAT supports moves toward a more progressive industry and society.
