Diversity & Inclusion FAQs

Q. How does diversity and inclusion fit with Argonne’s values?

A. Argonne values excellence in science and engineering, and it values the contributions that individuals make. The lab strongly encourages collaboration for the simple reason that scientific innovation is more likely to occur when individuals with diverse viewpoints, approaches, methodologies and backgrounds work together to solve a problem. In this, our collective diversity and an inclusive culture add value to scientific enterprise.
