WiN Ukraine operates in accordance with the goals and objectives of Women in Nuclear (WiN) Global, a worldwide non-profit organization founded in 1992, that unites, supports and encourages primarily women professionals working in the nuclear field. Men are also members of this global network.
The initiative to establish the Ukrainian branch of the global network - WiN Ukraine - arose in October 2019 during the first Ukrainian conference "Women in Nuclear Safety", held under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine on the basis of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and with the support of the Swedish Regulatory Authority - SSM.
In June 2020, WiN Ukraine became a full-fledged chapter organization which got the accreditation by WiN Global. The Ukrainian chapter aims to acquire regional status.
