The Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO) and Workforce Development & Education (WD&E) will host an open house for Berkeley Lab’s Ambassador Program. The brown bag lunch will be held on Monday, July 18th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the B50 Auditorium. The Ambassador Program was piloted in 2015 with the goal of advancing outreach efforts aimed at increasing underrepresented populations at the Lab. Scientists, engineers, and operations staff attended targeted conferences and events as Ambassadors, establishing relationships with selected organizations, and helping to develop a robust pipeline of qualified STEM and operations employees. The program is coordinated in partnership with the DIO, WD&E, and the Lab Directorate.
The goal of the open house is to inform the Lab community about the program, and encourage employees to participate as Ambassadors. DIO and WD&E will present and answer any questions.
