Women in Radiation is a professional network established under the Australasian Radiation Protection Society. The network consists of women who may work in areas involving ionising and non-ionising radiation. Its particular focus is women working in the radiation science or radiation risk management areas.
Its core values are to:
Women in Radiation is open to any person who works in radiation. They do not need to be a member of ARPS. There are no prerequisite criteria to be part of this network, other than an interest in radiation, a willingness to share ideas, a positive outlook, and being supportive.
The ARPS Women in Radiation network will also link with other similar networks, such as ALARM and Women in Nuclear Science.
A list of members in the Women in Radiation network, including their contact details, will be maintained by the secretariat of ARPS. It is expected that effective communication between members will evolve over time.
Women in Radiation is proposed to be a social-type network which, where possible, will meet from time to time (face-to-face in an informal setting or virtual). Any particular issue or matter may be raised at any time and debated in a neutral environment. It is proposed to be flexible to cater for the specific challenges and responsibilities of its members. It is expected that the format will evolve over time.
To be part of this network, please send your name and contact details to the ARPS secretariat at email@example.com.
