  • WiN Global Conference 2016

    ‘Powering Generations’ was the theme of the 2016 WiN Global Annual Conference, hosted for the first time in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi on 20-23 November 2016.  Delegates were challenged by plenary themes such as ‘do you have to be from a ‘STEM’ background to become successful in the nuclear industry?’ in the home of one of the world’s newest nuclear programs.

    56 countries were represented by 700 delegates – a change for many who were used to being the only woman in the room!  However, they were reminded that putting one woman in a control room may not work to change culture. Men seem to be delighted when they have a woman working with them, but one woman among several men may not change culture and help increase diversity and teamwork – multiple women are often needed.
