WINS Announces New International Gender Champion Commitments

WINS has announced two new International Gender Champion Commitments that focus on supporting women working in the nuclear sector in Ukraine.

The new commitments are:

1. WINS will support the Women in Nuclear (WiN) Ukraine chapter under the umbrella of WINS and highlight the role of WiN Ukraine in mentoring and sponsoring women in the nuclear sector in Ukraine, particularly during the Russian war of aggression.

2. WINS will highlight the experience of women in the nuclear sector through the project Voices of Ukraine and demonstrate the impact that the Russian war of aggression is having on nuclear security and women in this field.

“The experts in the nuclear field in Ukraine include many women who continue to work in war conditions and under occupation. The Voices of Ukraine project allows these experts to be heard around the world,” said WINS Executive Director Lars van Dassen.

“WINS’ support makes WiN Ukraine stronger and reinforces our efforts to support nuclear experts. During the war, support from international organisations and institutions is especially important to give these experts hope and strength,” said Anastasiia Nechytailo, WiN Ukraine Vice President.

These new commitments follow on WINS’ previous pledges to achieve 40% representation of women in all projects and programmes and to adopt inclusive language in all events, announcements, communications and publications.

All of the International Gender Champions’ commitments will be announced in February. For more about the network and its work, see the International Gender Champions website.
