Developing leaders since 1999

NAYGN has always been at the forefront of developing future leaders within the nuclear industry.  Each year our organization and supporting chapters provide countless opportunities for professional and personal growth.

Making a Measurable Impact 

Every year we ask our organization and chapters across North America to track metrics against Professional Development, Networking, Public Information, and Community Service to measure the incredible impact we make on the industry, each other, and our communities.  2019, was another excellent year for our organization!

Innovation for Nuclear (I4N) – North America

NAYGN took a big step and formed a key partnership with Nuclear Energy Institue (NEI), Women In Nuclear (WiN), and the American Nuclear Society (ANS).  By joining these innovative groups together, we hope to leave a positive impact on the nuclear industry for generations to come! 

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to creating an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our organization and in the nuclear industry. As a membership body, it is our goal to build a diverse environment with intentional strategies to welcome and uplift everyone within our field.  

We understand that achieving equity is a continuous process, so we invite any active member of NAYGN to join our Diversity and Inclusion committee as we strive towards a welcoming culture for all.

Chapters Across North America

We have 100+ chapters spanning across 7 different regions.

Each chapter has their own leadership, goals, and initiatives which closely follow the organization.  These chapters provide an incredible opportunity for growth, networking,  professional development, and knowledge transfer.
