Peggy_EmmettU.S. WIN recently awarded chapter member Peggy Emmett with its most distinguished honor, the 2014 U.S. Women in Nuclear Leadership Award. The award recognizes U.S. WIN members who have made significant contributions and demonstrated leadership in its three core values: supporting an environment in nuclear energy and nuclear technologies in which both women and men are able to succeed; providing a network through which women in these fields can further their professional development; and providing an organized association through which the public is informed about nuclear energy and nuclear technologies. Emmett is the second chapter member to receive this award, following 2009 honoree Julie Ezold. Learn more about Emmett’s contributions during her 51-year career here.
