4th FEM’ENERGIA AWARD: Women of Talent in Nuclear

For the fourth consecutive year, the Fem’Energia Award was presented. The award highlighted the achievements of young women and women who promote gender development through their commitment to the nuclear sector.

Women in Nuclear (WiN) Europe, WiN France and EDF are convinced that jobs in nuclear are often wrongly considered “men’s jobs”. The nuclear sector would benefit from welcoming more women to its ranks. By flagging the achievements of remarkable women since 2009, the Fem’Energia Award promotes the contribution of women to the nuclear sector by highlighting those who have scientific, technical and nuclear technology jobs. The objective of the award is to attract young women and to consolidate their choice of a career in nuclear.

Once again this year’s jury was composed of nuclear experts (specialising in technical fields, training and human resources) who was impressed by the quality of the applicants, their enthusiasm, their exceptional professional commitment and their confidence in the future of their chosen career in nuclear.

The women competed for the award according to several categories, students and Professionals.


1. Vocational secondary school students
2. Graduate students with 2 or 3 years of higher education
3. Final year post-graduate students with 4 or 5 years, and more, of higher education


1. Women working in the nuclear industry in France
2. Women working in the nuclear industry in Europe
