W24 Inspiring a Generation of Nuclear Leaders

In this dynamic regulatory environment, the NRC is transforming to become a modern, risk informed regulator. To ensure the success of the agency in making the safe use of nuclear technology possible, the NRC is taking steps to attract and retain the next new generation of nuclear leaders by investing in our people, modernizing our decisionmaking, and fostering a culture of change and innovation. The NRC is also embracing the evolving nuclear environment, new technologies, and workforce and workload future demands.

The session will cover the agency’s efforts in hiring, motivating, and retaining the next generation of nuclear leaders. Representatives from other Federal agencies and private entities will also provide insights into preparing for the workforce of the 21st century and beyond. This will include interactive discussions between panelists and the audience to share ideas and create new goals to meet future nuclear energy demands.
