|THE WiN GLOBAL AWARD
organized in 1993 at a meeting in the Czech Republic, Women
in Nuclear (WiN) began as an idea — that a small group
of women working together could change how people everywhere
think about peaceful uses of nuclear energy. As of mid 2006,
that idea has grown into a network of more than 2000 women in
68 countries and regions.
late 1992, just before the first Constitutional Meeting of
WiN in Karlovy Vary in Czech Republic, the newly established
WiN Leading Group first time mentioned the WiN Award as a
part of the future WiN's annual work programs. In 1995, the
Board established rules for an annual award to honor nuclear
communications programs in local, national and international
forums with audiences ranging from teachers and students to
local government officials to national news media. The first
candidate to receive the Award in 1996 was Lyudmila Kolesnikova
