WiN aims to spread the idea that nuclear and radiation technologies are locally, nationally, and internationally beneficial.
Rabat – Women in Nuclear Global (WiN) opened a chapter in Kenitra, a city north of Rabat, on Monday, December 3. The NGO supports and encourages women working in nuclear industries around the world.
With 35,000 members from 109 countries, WiN is composed of women working professionally in medicine and health care, in regulatory authorities, in industry, and as independent researchers.
The NGO aims to promote the understanding and public awareness of the benefits of nuclear and radiation technologies, while addressing public concerns regarding such technologies. WiN strives to foster interest in nuclear engineering and science among women and youth.
With an office in Kenitra, local women working in the field will be able to discuss nuclear issues and exchange ideas, information, and experience. The Kenitra chapter also strives to offer young Moroccan women tools to succeed in their studies and professional life.
Senior officials from Kenitra’s Ibn Tofail University presided over the chapter’s inauguration on Monday, along with officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The inauguration took place after a two-day conference that promoted cooperation between African women working in the nuclear sector.
