Argonne recognized with 2014 Best Diversity Company award

June 25, 2014

The readers of Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology have recognized Argonne National Laboratory as a 2014 Best Diversity Company.

Readers ranked Argonne amongst the highest organizations that support minorities, women and veterans, and provide attention to work/life balance and commitment to supplier diversity. The award recognizes organizations that employ significant numbers of technical professionals.

Diversity/Careers magazine readers and website visitors voted from February through April of 2014 in the magazine’s eighth annual Best Diversity Companies Readers’ Survey. They identified the corporations, government agencies and other organizations in the U.S. doing the best work in diversity. The voters’ choices were based on their perceptions, formed by their own experiences, their conversations with others or what they’d read.

Readers were asked to affirm the status of organizations that have been recognized as Best Diversity Companies in the magazine’s previous reader surveys, and were given the opportunity to include new organizations whose diversity initiatives they found particularly striking.

“Argonne is committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace,” said Argonne Diversity Program Officer Alberto Camargo. “Each individual possesses a unique background, thought process and methodology. The lab supports an inclusive environment, encouraging collaboration and valuing all individuals and their unique perspectives. When we work together, great science can happen.”
