As part of the leadership strand of the People Stream in the Nuclear Sector Deal , the Nuclear Skills Strategy Group (NSSG) together with Women in Nuclear UK (WiN UK) launched a Nuclear Sector Gender Roadmap and Nuclear Sector Gender Commitment at the NIA Conference in December.
The roadmap sets out a plan of action across five themes – Attraction, Retention, Indicators, Industry Guidance and Enablers. It is sector-owned and is accompanied by a Commitment Pledge that sees employers, companies and individuals pledging their support to the Nuclear Sector Deal commitment target of a 40% female workforce by 2030.
Cavendish Nuclear has played an integral part of the development of the Nuclear Sector Deal and will continue to support its development and implementation through these vital initiatives.
Cavendish Nuclear’s Strategy Director and WiN UK President (designate) Lynsey Valentine said:
“The NSSG and WiN UK have both been striving to achieve a more diverse workforce for a number of years. Attitudes are moving on. We know that a workforce made up of different types people has a greater diversity of thought – which can only be truly harnessed through the creation of an inclusive environment. WiN UK are delighted to support this important Gender Roadmap that is fully endorsed by a number of partner delivery organisations. Importantly it is also accompanied by an Industry Commitment signed by senior leaders across our entire sector.”
