At Cavendish Nuclear we are committed to encouraging inclusion and developing a diverse workforce, to do that we are keen to inspire more women to embark on a career in engineering.
At present 19% of the workforce at Cavendish Nuclear are female, the Women’s Network aim to increase this figure. The Women’s Network is about doing something proactive to attract, develop and retain women into the Nuclear Industry, Engineering and Cavendish Nuclear. It is not about singling women out, it is building an environment where gender diversity is embedded in everything we do.
The aim is to achieve a thriving Women’s Network that supports 3 key areas; personal development, support to STEM activities and raising our profile and brand. We want Cavendish Nuclear’s reputation to pave the way for a balance of men and women in engineering sectors. We have started to link up with other Women’s Networks and want to provide our employees with networks nationwide and make global connections.
At Cavendish Nuclear we promote a work-life balance and empower employees to work flexibly and get the job done.
