Women in Fusion is a global platform for highlighting and encouraging the role of women in the fusion field. Initiated by a collaboration of founding members including EUROfusion, WiF aims to collaborate with members and organizations around the world, inspire local Chapters, and ensure that women fusioneers around the world have a platform for support and community building.
Together with Shira Tabachnikoff, the Vice Chair in the Women in Fusion Steering Committee and Internal & Stakeholder Relations Manager at the ITER Organization, Pietro Barabaschi discusses such important questions as:
- What challenges do women face in STEM and how to eliminate them?
- What are the two main reasons for promoting equity, diversity and inclusion at the workplace?
- What proactive measures can help women succeed in their career?
- What is being done at ITER to support women and what are plans for the future?
“I really applaud this initiative – it is wonderful, and I will do all I can to support it,” said Pietro. ITER is one of the founders of Women in Fusion – there are two ITER members in the Steering Committee, and the platform is delighted to have support of the ITER Director-General: “we thank Pietro for the interview and hope to strengthen our collaboration in building inclusive and supportive environment for women building their career in fusion”, shares Shira Tabachnikoff.
