U.S. Women in Nuclear recently participated in a significant commitment of collaboration across our entire industry with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Nuclear Energy Institute, the North American Young Generation in Nuclear, the American Nuclear Society, and U.S. Women in Nuclear. The MOU was signed by and Jhansi Kandasamy, chair for U.S. Women in Nuclear along with Amber Von Ruden, president of North American Young Generation in Nuclear, Maria Korsnick, president and chief executive officer of the Nuclear Energy Institute, and Marilyn Kray, president of the American Nuclear Society. The MOU was announced on June 9, 2020 at the ANS Annual Meeting. The organizations have agreed to strengthen their collaboration in advancing nuclear energy and science, professional development, and member networking to support industry priorities and benefit their individual members.
The MOU outlines how the organizations will strengthen their collaboration to continue advancing nuclear energy and science, professional development, and member networking to support industry priorities and benefit individual members. These organizations have all worked together in the past, but now have a formal framework for collaboration. The MOU calls for regular communications between the organizations, cross-organizational opportunities for mentoring and knowledge transfer, sharing of outreach and stakeholder communications lessons learned amongst the organizations, and several other practices to keep us all working together.
