Our Core Beliefs

values 1

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accountability are core elements of our values

At LLNL we embrace our core values, of which creating an inclusive environment for all staff, collaborators, and visitors is a central element. Our senior leadership team is committed to meeting the calling of inclusiveness and mutual respect.

We aspire to create a diverse workforce and an equitable and inclusive workplace where all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the Laboratory’s success.

We use feedback and data from a variety of sources to identify our challenges, inform our culture strategy, and set our priorities. We seek candid feedback from external review committees, employee town halls and focus groups, senior leader discussions, and employee resource groups. This approach provides a well-informed understanding of issues and challenges and guides our strategies to address them.

People are the foundation of the Lab. Excellence is always our objective – our important missions demand it – and high-performing teams require a diversity of perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and ideas to successfully innovate.

Building an inclusive and equitable environment, a culture that embraces diversity and strives for common cause, a work environment that celebrates both individual and team achievements in meaningful ways, is our greatest opportunity and most essential responsibility.
