Argonne National Laboratory

Leadership Development
Argonne has a long-term vision for its workforce, recognizing that future challenges will be solved by the next generation of leaders.

The Strategic Laboratory Leadership Program, sponsored by UChicago Argonne, LLC, develops future leaders at Argonne. Each year, the Laboratory Director selects 15 employees to participate in the program along with staff from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Jefferson Laboratory and The University of Chicago. The highly rated UChicago Booth School of Business Executive Education Office developed this non-degree executive education leadership program with input from both Argonne and Fermilab.

Argonne’s Women in Science and Technology (WIST) organization also hosts a series of professional development seminars including topics such as negotiation skills, communication skills and grant writing. WIST’s professional enhancement seminars also include work-life balance, stress management and innovative solutions to career and gender issues.
