NGO Women in Nuclear Global (WiN Global), which supports and encourages women working in nuclear industries throughout the world, opened on Monday in the Atlantic coastal city of Kenitra a WiN Global chapter in Morocco.
The inauguration of the WiN Global office in the North African Kingdom was made by seniors officials representing the Ibn Tofail University and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
WiN Morocco was opened on the sidelines of a two-day conference held to exchange experiences between African women working in the nuclear sector, enhance cooperation between them and improve their representation in this field.
The opening of WiN office in the North African country offers women operating in the field to discuss nuclear issues, to make their voices heard and to give young women ways to succeed in their studies and professional life.
Founded in 1993, WiN Global aims to promote the understanding and public awareness of the benefits of nuclear and radiation applications through a series of active networks, national, regional and international. Chapters have their own domestic WiN networks, often very active.
WiN Global has currently around 35,000 members including women working professionally in medicine and health care, in regulatory authorities, in industry and as independent researchers. The members have a common commitment to provide information and communicate with the public.
