Employee Resource Groups

The Laboratory’s employee resource groups (ERGs) are essential in creating awareness and providing feedback to the leadership team on workplace challenges and on workplace sentiment. Our ERGs enlist and empower our employees to help create a community where everyone feels respected and valued, and the groups work individually and together to help create a welcoming environment for more than 5,700 employees. They also play a critical role in recruitment.

ERG membership is open to all staff, and groups serve the diverse needs of female, veteran, African American, Latinx, Asian American, early-career professional, and LGBTQ+ staff. Current membership in all ERGs exceeds 1,000 employees.
