About

Women in Nuclear (WiN) is a global association of women and men supporting and encouraging women working in the nuclear industry, particularly energy and radiation applications.

WiN Canada was formed in 2004 and has been working to support the objectives of WiN Global by emphasizing and supporting the role that women can and do have in addressing public 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 other personal development opportunities.

Our Vision

To make the public, especially women, aware of the benefits of nuclear and radiation applications in health, energy, food and water.

Our Mission

WiN Canada aims to develop a dialogue with the public to promote factual awareness about the contribution of nuclear and radiation technologies to people and society. WiN Canada is also focused on contributing to knowledge and experience exchange among members and chapters, both in Canada and internationally. Finally, WiN Canada works to promote career interest in nuclear engineering, science, technology, the trades and other nuclear-related professions, especially among women and young people.
