Dalton Nuclear Institute is Inclusion and Diversity Trailblazer
The Dalton Nuclear Institute – like the rest of The University of Manchester - is committed to creating an environment where diversity is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly, regardless of gender, gender identity, disability, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marital or transgender status, age, or nationality. Becoming an Academic Partner of IDN for 2023 is one way in which we are helping to make sure the Institute is a welcoming and supportive environment for all. This partnership signals our shared intent to provide research and insights to help the nuclear industry and associated academic institutions become more inclusive and equitable.
Prof. Adrian Bull of the Dalton Nuclear Institute said: “The issues around diversity and inclusion are important in any sector – but especially so for nuclear, given the expected high demand for new recruits in the near future. Although the focus is often on industry, these issues are just as critical in academia as the recruitment ground for many of the skills needs in nuclear. We’re delighted that the Dalton Institute is the first Academic Partner for IDN and we look forward to working closely together as we go forward.”
IDN is a not-for-profit initiative founded in 2019 and aims to provide useful and practical information and support around inclusion, equity and diversity. IDN co-founder Monica Mwanje said: “We are delighted about this new academic partnership with the Dalton Nuclear Institute. Their expertise and reach make for an exciting and reciprocally informative partnership. ”
