Diversity is a scientific strength. The Laboratory thrives from diversity as each individual brings experiences and knowledge that enhances teamwork and productivity. Ideas are shared freely as multidisciplinary teams come together to create scientific and technological solutions for the nation.
"Bringing together individuals from a variety of backgrounds not only enhances our shared knowledge, but it also enriches our daily lives while working together. Diversity and inclusion strengthens the Laboratory’s mission, science, and our Lab-family’s bond.
We want to create an inclusive workforce that values a range of talents, styles and experiences. Our unity is a great display of our strength, and our diversity is our power. Our goal is to continue strengthening our current employee’s resources and talent, and to build a pipeline of individuals who will not only provide new ideas to an innovative laboratory, but who will also inspire our lab-community to flourish."
