Diversity Statement from the Director

Jefferson Lab's Diversity Program is integrated with the laboratory's mission. We value the contributions of all people regardless of their differences. Our emphasis is on people and the environment in which they work.
Because the laboratory's mission is scientific, our Diversity Program seeks to enhance scientific discourse. The goals of the laboratory's Diversity Program are:

1. To create and maintain a professional, ethical and respectful work environment in which everyone contributes to the laboratory's mission; and
2. To maintain and encourage a workforce composed of qualified people who proportionally represent the diversity of their professions.
3. To increase diversity within the laboratory and the broader scientific and engineering communities in the nation.
