WINS Virtually Launches International Best Practice Guide on Advancing Gender Parity in Nuclear Security

On March 23, WINS virtually launched the International Best Practice Guide on Advancing Gender Parity in Nuclear Security, which addresses the underrepresentation of women in nuclear security.

Funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway, the International Best Practice Guide focuses on providing organisations with actionable steps to promote security by design at the onset. The best practices found in the Guide are based primarily on the experiences of female nuclear security professionals who we have engaged with at previous WINS events.

The International Best Practice Guide is accessible to WINS Members in our Knowledge Centre here

The virtual launch – which drew 90 participants from 28 countries – was facilitated by Ms Rhonda Evans, Lead for the WINS Gender Programme, and featured experiences of gender parity in the field from the following special guest speakers:

• H.E. Ms Kjersti Andersen, Ambassador and Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Norway to the International Organisations in Vienna;

• Mr Lars van Dassen, Executive Director of WINS;

• Mr Duncan Worsell, MBE, Chief Superintendent UK Civil Nuclear Constabulary;

• Ms Margaryta Rayets, Women in Nuclear, Ukraine.

The event also featured pre-recorded messages made by guests who had attended our previous webinars and WINS staff on best practices to promoting gender parity in the field. To read more about the event itself, click here
