Employees of the Khmelnytsky Nuclear Power Plant became the first heroines of the seminar-forum “Professional Development of Women in Atomic Energy” and launched the implementation of the system of WiN Ukraine and SE “Energoatom” measures, that covers all nuclear power plants in Ukraine.
“Already today we have a critical situation with the personnel reserve, because Generation Z gives preference to those companies and those areas of activity where these values are and who follow global trends. So, today we have to change and demonstrate to the younger generation that our Company is just like that. KhNPP became the first platform to receive us today with a seminar-forum. We all know that the station has ambitious plans – completion of power units X3, X4. And the issue of staffing already arises today, so the women of Khmelnitsky NPP have the opportunity to express themselves and demonstrate their values to the younger generation that nuclear energy has no stereotypes,” said Renata.
Natalia Klos, Director of Regional Development and Cooperation at WIN Ukraine, who is the project manager of NGO, conducted a survey and an interactive lecture on the disclosure of the concept of “gender” and its manifestations in the modern world. She noted that the first positive response to the call for professional development from women of SE “Energoatom” was received in the spring of this year, and noted the company’s success in debunking the stereotype that the nuclear industry is only male. In addition, she stressed the sincere interest among the workers and the support of the management of Khmelnitsky nuclear power plant.
