Diversity & Inclusion: Part of Our Culture
To do world-class, 21st-century science here at Argonne, we need smart, talented and capable men and women who are committed to our mission of providing scientific and engineering solutions for our nation’s most pressing needs in energy, sustainability and security.
As a national laboratory, we have a responsibility to make sure that Argonne is a fair, inclusive and welcoming workplace. But beyond that, we need the broad range of creative ideas that diverse, collaborative teams can offer.
When we bring together groups of people whose cultural and intellectual backgrounds equip them to look at a problem from a variety of viewpoints, we are far more likely to come up with the most innovative and workable solutions. So we are committed to a strong diversity and inclusion program, to make sure that we can attract, hire, keep and develop the best talent available.
Our shared commitment to diversity is central to our mission of discovery and innovation. Our obligation to strive for excellence in everything we do requires us to embrace the principles of diversity and inclusion, and to recognize that, in respecting the differences of others, we are creating a culture that fosters and supports creativity and fruitful inquiry.
Together, we are building a culturally and intellectually diverse workplace that inspires everyone to achieve their full potential as we work to make discoveries and develop innovative technologies with the power to change the world.
