WiN (Women in Nuclear) is a world-wide association of women working professionally in various fields of nuclear energy and radiation applications.
WiN-Canada was formed in 2004 and has been working to support the objectives of WiN-Global and emphasize and support the role that women can and do have in addressing the general public’s concerns about nuclear energy and the application of radiation and nuclear technology. WiN-Canada also works to provide an opportunity for women to succeed in the industry through initiatives such as mentoring, networking, and personal development opportunities.
WiN’s principle objectives are:
1. To develop a dialogue with the public to promote awareness around the factual contribution to people and society from nuclear technologies.
2. To contribute to knowledge and experience exchange among members and chapters.
3. To promote career interest in nuclear engineering, science, technology, the trades and other nuclear-related professions, especially among women and young people.
