WiN Global Award

Women in Nuclear (WiN) began as an idea — that a small group of women working together could change how people everywhere think about peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Now WiN has grown into a network of more than 35 000 members all over the world and covering all areas of nuclear applications.

Already in 1995, the WiN Global Board established an annual award to honor nuclear communications programs in local, national and international forums with audiences ranging from teachers and students to local government officials and to national news media.

To be considered as a viable candidate, a nominee must have demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following areas:

Communications by communicating clearly and without bias about the many        applications of nuclear and radiation related technologies

Education by working with students, teachers and school programs

Leadership by upholding the WIN goals and growing the WIN organization

Mentoring by supporting students, new employees and others seeking professional growth in nuclear and radiation related technologies.

WiN Honorary Award

In May 2012 the WiN Board established the WiN Honorary Award to honor a person dedicated to WiN development, in finance or other remarkable contributions. It is open to men, organizations or WiN members.

The awards will be presented at the WiN Global Annual Conference.
