The Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT) is a non-profit, professional organization that supports the advancement of women in international trade and business by providing networking and educational opportunities. OWIT is recognized worldwide for building ongoing trade relationships within and between global communities. Started in 1989, today OWIT is present in more than 20 countries in North and South America, Africa and Europe.
