Our Mission

Promote and encourage women in fusion

“Women must play an active role in the development of new technologies to help society - the path for that needs to be paved”

Our VISION

Encourage women

Women in Fusion will be the global platform for highlighting the role that women play in advancing cutting-edge research and technology in fusion. The organization will promote networking and opportunities for women in our field to learn from each other’s experiences, collaborate, and advance professionally.

 

Women in Fusion will serve as a resource both within and outside of our community to influence policy and promote equity and diversity within our field.

Women in Fusion is fully aligned with the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

ORGANIZATION

WiF members

Women in Fusion was established following the 2021 IAEA’s Fusion Energy Conference (FEC2020), which included a widely viewed webinar on the need to increase the representation of women in fusion science and research. (Women in Fusion at FEC 2020 – YouTube).

 

The reactions to the webinar were powerful – and clearly showed the need for more representations at key events on this topic.
