Women in Nuclear UK has appointed Adrienne Kelbie, Chief Executive of the Office for Nuclear Regulation, as its first Patron. 

The aim of Women in Nuclear  to address the industry’s gender balance, improve the representation of women in leadership and to engage with the public on nuclear issues.

As Patron, Kelbie’s role will involve helping to gain Government and industry support on specific subjects to raise the profile of WiN UK, as well as to be an advocate for WiN UK’s activities at conferences and with the media. 

She said: “As a leader, I focus most of my time in helping get the best out of excellent people and teams.  I feel passionately that the best teams bring diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experience.  So it is a great pity that, in the nuclear sector, women make up only 22% of the workforce.  And it’s even fewer at Board and senior level.

“This is a great waste of talent in a sector facing growth and severe skills shortages, which a more diverse workforce could tangibly address.  So I’m pleased to be able to work with WiN to increase the profile of this important matter.”
