WISTA UK – Southampton

WISTA UK Southampton

The Southampton Chapter provides interested local women and men easy access to the WISTA network and the benefits of support, education and inspiration that the WISTA membership provides, locally, regionally and internationally.

The local WISTA Southampton team is lead by Dr Kate Pike, with Emma Broadhurst and Natalie Vigar from Southampton Solent University, and Teresa Stevens of Guardian helping her.

The WISTA UK Southampton team are hoping to welcome many new members to their chapter, from management to cadet level, both women and men.

If you are able to host a meeting or would like to speak at a forthcoming event please contact us for more information.
