Who are WiN Global?

Founded in 1993, Women in Nuclear Global (WiN Global) is a global organization which supports and encourages women working in nuclear science and its applications throughout the world, particularly energy and radiation applications. WiN Global aims to promote understanding and public awareness of the benefits of nuclear and radiation applications through a series of active networks — at chapter, national, regional and international levels.

WiN Global, a non-profit organization, currently has around 35,000 members worldwide, including chapter members and individuals from 129 countries — organized nationally, regionally and internationally — and is still growing. Membership includes women working professionally in medicine and health care, regulatory authorities, industry and independent research. The members have a common commitment to providing the public with information and an opportunity to communicate.

We are open to any applicant involved in the promotion of nuclear activities who pledges to adhere to the goals of the WiN Charter – men are also very welcome to join.

WiN Global holds an annual conference, and many chapters hold their own meetings. We also publish a quarterly newsletter, WiNFO, which is sent to all members and which provides an insight into the activities of women in nuclear throughout the globe. Back copies of this newsletter are available here, so please take a look and see what some of our members are up to.
