Women in Fusion at the Fusion Power Associates Symposium in Washington

On December 6 in Washington DC, General Atomics hosted a Congressional Briefing “Developing a Diverse Fusion Workforce,” exploring ways to develop the diverse and inclusive workforce we need to bring fusion to the grid. The program included speakers from UCLA, UCSanDiego, NSBPInc., Women in Fusion (WiF), IAEA, and Energy for the Common Good.

Looking forward to the first generation of fusion energy plants, the opportunity to revolutionize the way the world gets its energy is upon us, and the chance to create a new industry with diversity and inclusion is a priority. General Atomics is among those committed to these efforts, and proudly hosted a briefing on Capitol Hill that brought together different voices in the fusion and STEM communities to discuss the challenges and opportunities for developing a diverse and inclusive workforce.


General Atomics is deeply appreciative of the organizations and distinguished panel that helped make this event a success:

Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi, President, National Society of Black Physicists
Dr. Jane Hotchkiss, Co-Founder and President, Energy for the Common Good
