The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) highlighted the graduation of the NEXT20 Cohort in their Executive Advisory Group Update, October Special Section. The Nuclear Executives of Tomorrow (NEXT) leadership program was created through a collaboration of U.S. WIN, the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), and nuclear executives from around the industry. In this program, the 12 cohort members developed their executive leadership competencies through one-on-one coaching sessions, expert speakers and panels, and their cohort’s capstone project — all while developing a professional network focused on helping one another succeed.
INPO shared perspectives on the program from NEXT20 Graduates Rebecca Salvadore, Site Training Director of Exelon Corporation’s Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station; Amanda Donges, director of Plant Operations at INPO; and Christine Kenny, senior director of Enterprise Management at PSEG. They talked about the personal and professional growth they experienced through the program and how for their capstone project, they wanted to leave something behind for future generations of leaders.
We join INPO in congratulating all of the NEXT20 Graduates:

The Exelon – Peach Bottom and Exelon – Kennett Square chapters are taking part in a virtual tour at the Brandywine River Museum of Art for their exhibit titled – Votes for Women: A Visual History (https://votes.brandywineathome.org/). This exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary year of the passage of the 19th Amendment. A series of videos have been produced by the museum (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYqVYBTIm7u10UiYvUTi4l1QuKB0Fy4ds ), and the chapters will have a streaming event to watch and discuss. The chapters intend to have an open discussion after the virtual tout, talk about interesting tidbits, and see how this compares to current societal movements and changes. There will also be a virtual happy hour after the watch party and discussion.
From the Brandywine Museum website: In the absence of televised and digital media, the women’s suffrage campaign played out very differently from political movements today. Suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, parades, and even through fashion. This exhibition at the Brandywine River Museum of Art examines the visual culture of the suffrage movement, revealing how the “look” of women’s rights developed. While the Nineteenth Amendment granted women the right to vote, many voting struggles persisted for marginalized groups following its ratification. Presenting an inclusive historical narrative, the exhibition recognizes the efforts of women of color, which have been largely overlooked. The visual lessons of the suffrage movement provided a model for later activism, including the civil rights and social justice movements, making this not just a centennial commemoration, but a window into contemporary visual discourse.
