Urenco is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workforce which is vital for our continued success in meeting the world’s demand for sustainable energy. We have I&D Champions in place across the organisation, with a lead champion for each location, and we are committed to providing regular I&D awareness training to all employees. Our annual I&D calendar encourages conversations on thought-provoking topics, helping to increase awareness and understanding so we can learn together with the aim of minimising any stigma and accepting that we’re all different.
We run global guest speaker sessions, listening sessions with our executive sponsor for I&D, lively roundtable discussions, and share stories and experiences on our staff intranet to engage our employees on important issues. We also have a global reciprocal mentoring programme encouraging further I&D discussions. We hold annual global I&D conferences showcasing speeches from I&D experts in leading external organisations, and recognise and celebrate important I&D work carried out across all of our sites and locations with annual awards.
We recognise that the journey to a truly diverse workplace starts far before the point employees walk through our doors. That is why we have many initiatives and partners that aim to increase the accessibility of the nuclear industry to those who are typically underrepresented. Through our Richie education programme, we aim to encourage both boys and girls to consider Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers.
In addition to our own efforts, we also support several companies and initiatives that aim to improve the accessibility of education and careers in the nuclear industry for women and other underrepresented groups.Find out more about our partnerships
