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?

Necoya: My life experiences prompted me to serve on this committee, as well as my desire to educate the masses on what people who are different deal with on a daily basis. I thought it prudent that an individual who has both academic training in this subject matter and relevant life experience serve in this capacity. I bring my whole self when I show up and that whole adds value, flavor, perspective, insight, inclusivity and a drive for excellence in every endeavor.

国际原子能机构: 您对行业如何解决 DE&I 有什么经验/观察?

Necoya: I’ve found that some companies think DE&I is something they to do rather than a foundation principle from which they operate. I recognize when organizations have made DE&I a part of mandatory training for their staff versus those who have incorporated this into the DNA of the company. In the former case, it is still beneficial for organizations to focus on this work because for some, that is the impetus to create a space to ground everything in this foundational precept.

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?

Necoya: I’d like to see everyone develop their culture from practices that highlight DE&I to the point where needing this type of intensive reframing is not necessary.

国际原子能机构: 您认为公司可以如何帮助推进 DE&I?

Necoya: Companies must do an honest assessment of their practices and norms to determine how mature their initiatives are and then identify goals to grow. It’s important to measure progress and continuously strive for progression. It starts at the top!

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?

Necoya: Join committees, do your research, and be active in the DE&I initiatives not only at work but in your community.

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。
