2019-11-28 WiN France first Convention 

The first WiN France convention was held on November 28 on the theme « Women nuclear ambassadors »

In the introduction, Aline des Cloizeaux, the new president of WiN France presented the results of an opinion poll, carried out by BVA for ORANO. Then, Valérie Faudon, general delegate of SFEN, intervened to present the results of the work carried out during the PIME (annual gathering of nuclear communicators).

During this meeting  Clotilde Morizot, active member of the WiN Rhône-Ain-Loire action committee, received the 1st WiN Regions award  for her remarkable actions during this year 2019.

The participants had also  the opportunity to exchange in workshops led by experts passionate about their field. These workshops were about different aspects of nuclear power: Nuclear energy is a clean energy with few CO2 emission, and an  inexpensive energy. Nuclear industry is also the third sector after aeronautics and automotive industries, with 220,000 jobs.

Other workshops were on how to communicate and discuss nuclear energy. How to communicate via social networks, with family or with a young audience or convince of the attractiveness of the professions offered in the nuclear industry.

The day ended with a play on a unknown part of Marie Curie’s life,  « The Pact of the Sisters » extracted from a short story of Natacha Henry, played by  the Compagny « le Saut des Anges »

In 1865 and 1867 in Warsaw under the Russian occupation, Bronia and Marie Sklodowska are passionated about the sciences. But , universities are prohibited for girls. Determined and already very accomplices, they decide to defy the obstacles and pursue their dreams. For Bronia, it will be medicine and for Marie, the physical sciences and then chemistry.
