Wisconsin Project Announces Participation in Gender Champions in Nuclear Policy

The Wisconsin Project’s Executive Director, Valerie Lincy, has joined the Gender Champions in Nuclear Policy (GCNP) initiative. Valerie was among 25 fellow leaders in the nuclear policy field who joined the initiative when it was launched on November 14, 2018.

GCNP represents leaders of organizations who are actively working to address issues of gender inequality and will commit to avoid participating in single-gender panels. As Gender Champions, these leaders are committed to breaking down barriers and making gender equality a working reality in their spheres of influence. Learn more about the Gender Champions initiative here.

In addition to the panel parity pledge, Valerie has committed to three individual pledges aimed at achieving effective gender balance at the Wisconsin Project, including:

  • Ensure that all selection panels and final applicant pools for new positions in the organization are not single gender.
  • Ensure that early career experts (especially women) are single author on at least one article per year.
  • Promote gender diversity in senior management positions, aiming at 50% of board and manager positions are held by women and guaranteeing that at least 40% of such positions are held by women.

The Wisconsin Project is proud to be part of this initiative, which will help augment its efforts to build networks, skills, visibility, and voice among women working in the nuclear policy and related fields. In particular, Valerie’s pledges will ensure that the Wisconsin Project continues to build a diverse team committed to bringing forward women’s contributions in order to more effectively achieve the organization’s mission.
