Established in 1989, the Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT), is a global association for women in international trade and business. Our 2,000-plus members impact hundreds of millions of dollars in trade and business transactions annually. OWIT’s focus is on adding value for our corporate, mid-sized, small business and individual members around the world.


OWIT serves as the unifying body of a network of chapters, including WIT-NC, and spanning the globe in:

  • the Americas,
  • Western Europe, and
  • Africa.

OWIT also supports a “Virtual Chapter” for individuals involved in international trade and business who do not have access to a local OWIT chapter where they reside or work. Membership in a local or the Virtual Chapter gives automatic access to the OWIT International network.
