国际原子能机构: 是什么促使您加入 IAEE 多元化、公平和包容性委员会?

Lee: I have felt strong inclusion at IAEE and the industry. Bob Dallmeyer took me under his wing and made me feel very welcome in the trade show world. He was a great mentor and maybe by being a party of DE&I, I can help others.

国际原子能机构: 您对行业如何解决 DE&I 有什么经验/观察?

Lee: I think the industry is doing a good job addressing DE&I. There is always room for improvement in our work situations.

国际原子能机构: 您希望看到行业在 DE&I 方面取得哪些整体进步?

Lee: Maybe more DE&I people on company boards.

国际原子能机构: 您认为公司可以如何帮助推进 DE&I?

Lee: When executives are searching out talent for board member appointments and other top positions, be mindful of each person’s qualifications and if one falls in the DE&I group consider them to help give balance in your organization.

国际原子能机构: 对于那些想要了解更多信息和/或帮助提高行业内 DE&I 意识和进步的个人,您有什么建议?

Lee: Form focus groups inside companies and just be aware of the talents within. If DE&I people have the knowledge/abilities as others, then they should get consideration for executive and board positions.

IAEE 的目标是吸引尽可能多的成员,他们愿意向我们的社区分享他们在 DE&I 重要性方面的经验。如果您有故事要讲,请发送电子邮件 Karen Gonzales,CMP,我们将重点关注您的体验。
