SPIE wins the Fem'Energia award in the "Joint Application" category
Cergy, 24 November 2021 - SPIE Nucléaire, a French subsidiary of the SPIE group, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the areas of energy and communications, has won the Fem'Energia award in the "Joint Application" category. This award recognises an initiative developed by an in-house team of exclusively female colleagues to outsource a business activity to an ESAT (Etablissement et Service d'aide par le travail - a vocational rehabilitation centre for persons with disabilities). The centre's staff members contribute to the subsidiary's activities by preparing "ready-to-install" cables, i.e. cables cut to the desired length for quick installation on site.
Winners for an exemplary project that combines operational performance with disability integration
This project was developed by a team of eight women with complementary talents from various departments who are all members of the So'SPIE Ladies mixed network. The purpose of this network is to promote the place of women and to create a better gender mix within the world of business:
"I am very happy and really proud of the honour received by our teams! This award illustrates the power of our internal So'SPIE Ladies network, which brings together women with different and complementary profiles to work to achieve common goals. This work sets an example as it combines the strong values we champion: people safety, responsibility and performance. It also enables us to act in a very concrete way to help people with disabilities," adds David Guillon, Managing Director of SPIE Nucléaire.
 WIN France and WIN Global, in partnership with the EDF Institut de France, Académie des Sciences, Sciences et Enseignement programme, present the Fem'Energia award to encourage and provide financial support for women with a passion for the nuclear sector
