Ideals in Action
Our mission is to enable U.S. security and global stability and resilience by empowering multidisciplinary teams to pursue bold and innovative science and technology.
Our inclusive teams bring together exceptional scientific, technical, administrative, business and operational experts to accomplish our missions.
We fearlessly and relentlessly pursue big ideas to solve the most important security challenges facing the nation and the world.
At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, we deliver innovative science and technology inspired by principles and passion. We’re thrilled by discovery, and we’re driven by our commitment to excellence.
We foster new ideas, intellectual leadership, originality and audacity.
OUR VALUES: IDEAS
Livermore is the “big ideas” laboratory, and we continue to aspire to intellectual leadership, originality and audacity. We support an environment that encourages open exchange and critique. Ideas also improve operations and lead to new, better ways of doing business.
We seek to make an impact on our missions and people’s lives.
OUR VALUES: IMPACT
Innovation happens when new ideas have impact — on our mission, on people’s lives. Ultimately, our success depends on applying frontier science and technology, through disciplined engineering, to deliver solutions for — have impact on — our mission.
We prize transparency, honesty and objectivity in all our efforts.
OUR VALUES: INTEGRITY
We serve the public interest and act to sustain the public trust through transparency, honesty and objectivity. We act ethically in our research activities, our business practices and our interactions with each other. We are dedicated to collective success, and committed to safety and security as an integral part of the mission.
We benefit from diversity and mutual respect and support.
OUR VALUES: INCLUSIVENESS
The challenges of our mission demand that we draw on the widest possible diversity of talents, thought and experiences. To capitalize on the range of individual and diverse talents needed for mission success, we form and work in teams, characterized by mutual respect and support.
