WiN Canada works to provide an opportunity for women to succeed in the industry through initiatives such as mentoring, networking, and other personal development opportunities.
WiN Canada seeks to address three challenging goals. First, to engage and educate the public regarding the safe use and application of nuclear and radiation technologies. Second is to provide professional development opportunities for WiN Canada members. The third is to promote career interest in nuclear among women and young people.
