NominateNowIn an effort to continue DOE’s “Women @ Energy” project here at Berkeley Lab, our Women Scientists and Engineers Council (WSEC) and the Diversity and Inclusion Office are excited to host the second “Women @ The Lab” event on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. at the Berkeley Lab Cafeteria.

The inaugural Women @ The Lab event in 2013 showcased a few of our accomplished employees at Berkeley Lab.  These women shared profiles and stories, including what inspired them to work in STEM, what excites them about their work at the Lab, and their ideas for getting more underrepresented groups engaged in STEM.

This year, we are seeking nominations for talented and dedicated women employees across Berkeley Lab whose contributions and achievements to the Lab’s mission merit recognition.  Nominations are accepted for women employees across the following categories; self-nominations will also be accepted.  The nomination period is open until Monday, September 14, 2015.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow
