The Lab Directorate recently hosted an appreciation luncheon for veterans at Berkeley Lab on Monday, November 10, 2015. Lab Director Paul Alivisatos provided some words of thanks for their service, and Rich Celestre from Berkeley Lab’s Veteran Employee Resource Group invited fellow servicemen and women to join VERG.
The charter of the VERG is to enhance the work environment at Berkeley Lab for veteran employees and job seekers. Its goals are to promote an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere, identify and address emerging issues or challenges such as veteran recruitment and retention, increase the visibility and value of veterans’ skills in the workplace among management and staff, provide guidance for institutional processes and programs, enhance policies of non-discrimination, and recognize achievements impacting their community.
