Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Respect at the Project on Managing the Atom

| Sep. 01, 2019

The Project on Managing the Atom is an inclusive and supportive research group. We strive to foster a culture of respect for the ideas and contributions of each member of our community. In our work, we expose ourselves to and learn from a broad array of ideas, insights, and cultures. Gaining these exposures and insights involves interacting with outstanding people from diverse backgrounds and traditions, and ensuring that each participant at theProject on Managing the Atom feels that they belong and are valued in our community.

The Project on Managing the Atom does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, disability, or status as a veteran in its selection of fellows, employment of staff, or in its provision of access to or treatment in its projects and activities. The MTA Project is committed to recruiting and retaining a highly diverse group of research fellows, associates, and staff. We work to ensure that our appointments and selection procedures consciously identify and evaluate people from underrepresented groups.

As a research group, the Project on Managing the Atom emphasizes the powerful benefit of the exchange of ideas. We seek to build an atmosphere that welcomes new ideas—even unpopular and controversial ones—and encourages an active exchange of views in an environment of mutual respect. We call upon each of our members—faculty, fellows, and staff—to make our seminars and discussions more welcoming of the ideas and insights that participants from different backgrounds and perspectives offer. We seek to correct situations where full and open exchange of ideas has been limited by unconscious and other biases. Diverse perspectives are essential for solving the nuclear challenges the world faces today.

The MTA Project’s commitment to diversity is part of its mission of providing insights that help address critical public problems.
