Constitution Ave. NW and 20th St. NW, WDC 20551. Email email@example.com. What's
spookier than a Federal Reserve Chair driving us toward climate-related

banks operate in the shadows? President Biden is considering re-nominating
Trump-appointee Jerome Powell to head the Federal Reserve and time is running
out. Protest Jerome Powell's failed leadership at the Federal Reserve and
demand Biden appoint a climate champ to head the Fed! RSVP

80] –On Fri., Oct. 29 from 1 to 3 PM, tune in to Pipelines
and Ceilings: The Gender Gap in Nuclear Policy, sponsored by the Harvard
Kennedy School’s Belfer Center and hosted by the Project on Managing the Atom
(MTA) as part of its Atomic Voices series.
This is a discussion forum for perspectives on diversity, inclusion, and
belonging in the nuclear field. RSVP to receive the Zoom link: https://www.belfercenter.org/event/pipelines-and-ceilings-gender-gap-nuclear-policy.
The field of national and international security, and nuclear policy in
particular, has traditionally been predominantly white and predominantly male
in composition. It remains so, despite the declared commitment of many
organizations to attract women and minorities and earnest policies and
practices to do so. Only about one-third of professionals in the WMD policy and
research field are women. The gap is far wider for women of color.
