Hello there!

We’re kicking off 2022 greeting a cohort of new hires and waving farewell to Suzy, who is carrying forward our passion for equitable and inclusive nuclear energy policy at the U.S. Department of Energy!

Suzy Tapped as Senior Advisor at DOE 


We’re so excited to announce that DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy named our Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director, Suzy, as a Senior Advisor! In this first-of-a-kind role, Suzy is helping develop and implement the office’s justice mandate and supporting the department’s community engagement efforts on nuclear energy. 

Our team rises every day to develop compassionate, intelligent, environmentally and socially just policy solutions for nuclear. Suzy has dedicated over a decade of her career to making nuclear work for communities, and we are so proud to see her strength of leadership and character recognized in this new role.

Since Dec. 1, Jessica has continued to lead GEC as its Executive Director, retaining her role in heading up our work in developing strong, socially-grounded nuclear policy. 

Jackie Promoted to Deputy Director

Effective Dec. 1, GEC named Jackie Deputy Director of the organization. Jackie continues to spearhead Good Energy Collective’s external engagement and advocacy work and is assisting with operations and staff management as the organization more than doubles in size.
