Jacobs partners with Women in Nuclear

Jacobs is partnering with Women in Nuclear (WiN) UK to strengthen inclusion, diversity and gender equality in the sector. WiN UK is focused on addressing the industry’s gender balance, improving the representation of women in leadership and engaging with the public on nuclear issues.

Jacobs Aerospace, Technology, Environmental and Nuclear Senior Vice President and General Manager Pete Lutwyche said ‘As a business and an industry, we continually need to do everything we can to build workplaces that energise our people and encourage creativity, collaboration and innovation.’

Currently only 22% of the UK’s nuclear industry is female, and this number declines significantly at senior levels, statistics that WiN UK is working to change. There is strong evidence to suggest that an inclusive environment, with diverse teams, leads to better performance.

Opportunities will include joint events and initiatives throughout the year across the UK to promote careers in STEM, providing mentors and building closer connections with Jacobs' Women's Network.
