Building tomorrow’s workforce with focus on underserved communities
At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, we aim to broaden the participation of underserved communities in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce of tomorrow. Our employees are personally engaged in making better lives for all in the communities where they live, work, and raise their families.
Through outreach in under-resourced and marginalized communities, we raise awareness, address inequalities in education, and provide role models that demonstrate the possibilities to our youth.
As a service to our nation, LLNL inspires and helps educate communities through impactful programs, lectures, and other activities in order to motivate the next great scientist, engineer, writer, administrator, or graphic designer. The programs described here are just a part of the Lab’s full spectrum of STEM offerings.
Partnering with students and educators
We are committed to engagement in marginalized and under-resourced communities, raising awareness about opportunities in STEM-related fields, and encouraging the next generation of young people to pursue careers at LLNL.
To inspire and provide insight to the next generation, LLNL’s workforce encourages youth locally and nationally through STEM demonstrations, seminars, workshops, and education enrichment opportunities aimed at STEM educators and K–12 students.
Diversifying the hiring pipeline
The Laboratory currently has several strategic relationships with organizations that focus on building a workforce pipeline with an emphasis on attracting students identified as under-represented in science, technology, and operational fields.
We connect these students to educational and employment opportunities at LLNL, and we collaborate with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and universities to assist us in our workforce goals.
