- Acknowledge that the nuclear sector cannot reach its full potential without maximising the talents of all.
- Acknowledge that advancing equality and inclusivity demands commitment and action from all levels of the organisation and in particular active leadership from those in senior roles.
- Commit to identifying and removing the obstacles faced by women and other underrepresented groups.
- Commit to prioritise action to remove barriers to flexible working across the nuclear sector for all types of work and at all levels.
NIS is also proud to be one of the sponsors for this years WiN UK Conference “Addressing Gender Balance in the Nuclear Industry” which is taking place on Tuesday the 2nd February at Westminster.
Speaking ahead of the event NIS Director Gill Marsden said “Having worked in the nuclear industry for almost 30 years I’m all too aware of just how male dominated our sector has been, and how great the challenge is to create a more balanced and diverse workforce for the future. We have been active supporters of of WiN since its conception and we will continue to do whatever we can to assist in attracting and retaining women into this exciting and rewarding sector”.
