Nuclear Energy Agency – Improving the Gender Balance in the Nuclear Sector: Report Launch Webinar

Women scientists and engineers pioneered the nuclear and radiological fields, with leaders and innovators such as Marie Skłodowska-Curie and Lise Meitner, among many others, establishing the foundation of modern nuclear science and technology. Women continue to make vital contributions to the sector, but their visibility and overall numbers in the sector remains limited, especially in STEM and leadership roles. The lack of diversity in the sector represents a loss of potential innovation and growth and a critical threat to the viability of the field.

On 8 March 2023 the NEA will release a report featuring the first publicly available, international data on gender balance in the nuclear sector. The data was collected from over 8,000 women in the nuclear workforce in 32 countries and human resources data from 96 nuclear organisations in 17 countries. Based on the findings, a comprehensive, evidence-driven policy framework is proposed with practical recommendations.

This NEA publication will be launched with a webinar featuring leaders from across the global nuclear sector, including government, industry, and academia. A discussion of the key findings will feature a diversity of perspectives on the report’s call to action for the international community.
