Westinghouse Women in Nuclear, or W-WIN, is an association of Westinghouse Electric Company employees, focusing on women who are working to:
- promote an environment that supports leadership development of women in Westinghouse;
- establish a framework within Westinghouse and nuclear utilities through which women can further their professional development, to include but not limited to networking with customers in the industry and mentoring women; and
- promote public awareness about facts on nuclear energy and the nuclear industry and promote career interest in engineering and nuclear technologies.
Through its Women In Nuclear (WIN) chapter, Westinghouse Electric Company offers a $2,500 scholarship to a female high school senior graduating in the spring from a Pittsburgh area school. The candidate must intend to pursue a Bachelorís degree in engineering, mathematics, or physical sciences at an accredited college or university.
