We also aim to raise awareness of the positive impact advancing nuclear technology has on our lives, from producing net zero-carbon energy to producing the medical radioisotopes used to diagnose patients and deliver lifesaving medical treatment.
We sponsor student STEM engagement to enrich the next generation of scientists and engineers through our partnerships with and sponsorships of various nonprofit organizations and scholarship programs including:
As part of our diversity and inclusion strategies, we are dedicated to strategically recruiting and hiring interns to provide STEM education and mentorship opportunities to historically underrepresented demographics.
Since 2018, we have sponsored a student-driven design competition to create a 3D printed object to be used as an employee award, the SHINE Illuminator Award, given annually to SHINE employees who showcase excellence in the workplace and exemplify our Core Values.
This important collaboration aligns with the School District of Janesville’s emphasis on STEM/STEAM education and transformation initiative and SHINE’s community engagement focus on nuclear and STEM education.
Practicing environmental stewardship
We are a firm believer in environmental stewardship, which is why we work hard as a company to not only meet but exceed environmental protection regulatory standards. We believe in doing more than keeping our own front porch clean and go out into the community to practice stewardship in the form of service work.
During the 2020 pandemic, our employees rolled up their sleeves to help the environment by picking up trash, planting trees, and growing their own food to support family and friends.
