Through Gender Champions in Nuclear Policy, the leader of an organization or institution involved in any aspect of nuclear policy can become a Gender Champion. To diversify panels and support a variety of perspectives in the nuclear policy sector, Gender Champions in Nuclear Policy offers a list of questions for individuals to ask when invited to participate on a panel:
- What are you doing to ensure gender diversity at your event?
- Are there any women, or equal numbers of women, speaking on the panel(s)?
- (If not) Have the organizers reached out to female experts?
- (If not) Can we share our evolving list of dynamic experts in the field that happen to be women?
- Are conference organizers using the list to identify and invite expert women panelists?
