The NRC is getting recognition for its diverse workforce. Readers of Minority Engineer Magazine have ranked the NRC as 5th on this year’s list of top government agencies.
Minority Engineer Magazine, first published in 1979, is distributed nationwide to engineering, computer-science and information-technology students and professionals who are Black, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian American. Every year, more than 56,000 readers vote for the U.S. companies they’d most like to work for or believe are progressive in hiring minority engineers.
The NRC is aggressive in seeking out qualified minority employees in all its job categories, and our workforce reflects this focus on diversity. The agency’s workforce is 38 percent female and 62 percent male. Ethnic and racial demographics are African-American—13 percent; Asian Pacific American—7 percent; Hispanic—3 percent; Native American–less than 1 percent; and white—77 percent.
We are proud that the readers of this magazine recognize our efforts.
