NDA group enjoys a big WiN at awards ceremony

Employees from across the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority group have been honoured at a prestigious national awards ceremony in London.

The Women in Nuclear (WiN) Annual Awards recognises those who have gone above and beyond to promote gender balance and diversity across the nuclear sector.

Inspiring role model Prof Melanie Brownridge, the NDA’s Technology and Innovation Director, scooped the award for Champion of the Year – which recognises someone who influences their organisation, and the wider industry, to address gender balance.

Dounreay Women’s Network and WiN Scotland Highland Regional Team won the Regional Heroes of the Year award – which recognises groups who work together to make a difference.

Speaking at the annual WiN conference, David Peattie, NDA Chief Executive and new patron of WiN UK, said it was an honour to attend the event and hear so many inspiring stories.

I would like to congratulate all of the winners and those who were nominated for an award. It is hugely important that we recognise those who go the extra mile to improve diversity.

Their passion and determination to ensure we as an industry are making progress really helps the sector attract the right people with the right skills.
