Manchin supports nuclear provisions in Biden’s Build Back Better plan
Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) has been in the news over the past week—and that’s good news for the nuclear community. Last week, The Hill reported on Manchin’s support for climate action, and according to Bloomberg News this week, Manchin is “big on nuclear” and supports the tax credits for nuclear power plants included in the administration’s Build Back Better plan.

A workshop Sponsored by the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee and the U.S. Women in Nuclear
Come join the gamified, in-person workshop, Wednesday December 1 at 6:30 pm, centered around emotional intelligence in the workplace: Nuclear Family Feud! Similar to the popular game show, the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee in collaboration with U.S. Women in Nuclear have gathered a number of fun and thought provoking questions and polled the ANS community. See how well you know our nuclear family with questions ranging from “What’s the best isotope” to “What’s the most common reason people leave nuclear.” No need to come with a team prepared- we will team everyone at the workshop! Please register so we can plan for food and beverage options accordingly. We will have a virtual version of this event on Thursday.
Survey says… we need your help! In preparation for Nuclear Family Feud, we need your help in providing responses on a wide range of topics from the color of electrons to workplace conflict. Then, tune in on Wednesday, December 1 (onsite), or Thursday, December 2 (virtual), where players will earn points based on your responses. Please provide your anonymous input by participating in this brief survey, whether you are planning to attend the Winter Meeting or not. Registration for Thursday’s virtual game is open to everyone. Survey participants can choose to enter a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. Survey closes November 26.
