Women in Nuclear (WIN)
Women in Nuclear Global (WIN Global) is a global organisation which supports and encourages women working in nuclear industries throughout the world, particularly energy and radiation applications.
Founded in 1992, WIN Global aims to promote the understanding and public awareness of the benefits of nuclear and radiation applications through a series of active networks, both national and international. Many countries have their own domestic WIN networks, often very active.
WIN Global, a not-for-profit organisation, currently has around 4600 members in 102 countries and is still growing. Membership includes women working in medicine and health care, in regulatory authorities, in industry and as independent researchers. WIN Global are open to any applicant involved in the factual promotion of nuclear activities who pledges to adhere to the goals of the charter – men are very welcome to join.
WIN Global holds a successful annual meeting, and many national chapters hold their own meetings. WIN Global also publishes a monthly newsletter, WiNFO.
WNA provides adminstrative support to Women in Nuclear Global through a memorandum of understanding.
