WINS Highlights the Contribution of Diverse and Inclusive Workforces to Capacity Building for Sustainable Nuclear Security

Friday, 14 February 2020 from 11:00 to 12:30

Boardroom A

WINS Head of Engagement and Sustainability, Ms Rhonda Evans, is presenting a paper on the contribution of a diverse and inclusive workforce to sustainable nuclear security at ICONS.

All national nuclear security infrastructure requires human capacity for its continued effectiveness, especially at a time when nuclear energy and nuclear applications that support important societal objectives, health, industry, agriculture and culture may be subject to new and emerging threats based on advances in technology and increased capability of adversaries, including those motivated by violent extremist ideology. A national nuclear security regime requires a diverse group of competent professionals that have a deep understanding of the principles and practices of nuclear security.

The paper makes the case for gender parity to support sustainable nuclear security through its approach to the development of demonstrably competent nuclear security professionals. The session will also highlight the perspectives of others engaged in the non-governmental sector and their contribution to building capacity as well.
