5th FEM’ENERGIA AWARD: Women of Talent in Nuclear
For the 5th year, the Fem’Energia Award will feature young women and women who promote gender development in their commitment to the nuclear sector. Women in Nuclear (WiN) Europe and WiN France and EDF are convinced that nuclear jobs are often wrongly mistaken as “men’s job”. The nuclear field would benefit by welcoming more women in its sector. By pointing up remarkable women since 2009, the Fem’Energia Award promotes the place of women in the nuclear field by showing the ones who have scientific, technical and nuclear technology posts. Thus, its goal is to attract young women and consolidate their choice of working in nuclear.
The following “call for application” and the accompanying flyer should provide ENS NEWS readers with more information about this special award. If you would like to know even more about it, you can contact our friends at WiN France and WiN Europe via the email addresses provided at the end of the application form.
