U.S. WIN History
In May 1999, WiN-Global held a meeting in Washington, D.C. During the meeting, U.S. attendees met and agreed to establish U.S. Women in Nuclear. The meeting was a result of the efforts of the Nuclear Energy Institute—the meeting’s sponsoring organization—nuclear industry executives, the WiN-Global Board, and U.S. members of WiN-Global.
In the years since that organizing meeting, U.S. WIN membership has expanded to include over 65 chapters with individual members across the United States. National conferences provide networking and learning opportunities and attract several hundred attendees and presenters from major utilities, vendors, universities and government agencies. Members are also active in local and regional chapters, meetings, and activities.
