Response to Recent Events

As the past, present and incoming presidents of the Institute for Nuclear Materials Management, we watch with horror and sadness the events playing out on the streets of cities across the United States and around the world in response to the tragic and unnecessary killing of George Floyd. We recognize that the peaceful protests reflect the justified frustration of communities of color with systems that have failed them.

 

The INMM strives to provide a safe, welcoming, and productive experience regardless of color, ethnicity, national origin, or race. That said, this is not a time for self-congratulation but for self-reflection.  We can and must do better and continuously improve to not just value, but to promote and sustain, all dimensions of diversity in nuclear materials management and related fields.

 

As INMM leaders, we commit to continue seeking improvements in our own organization, as well as the nuclear material management community we represent. We welcome input from INMM members and will report back on steps we are taking and will take to make tangible this commitment.
