Berkeley Lab

Open House for Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) on Aug. 15

The Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO) will host an open house for all staff to learn more about Berkeley Lab’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).  The brown bag lunch will be held on Tuesday, August 15th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the B50 Auditorium.  ERGs are associations of employees who are organized around a primary diversity dimension and work on furthering the Lab’s business goals.  They promote opportunities for professional growth and development, provide an opportunity for informal networking, and support the Lab’s D&I vision and values.

Berkeley Lab currently has four ERGs: African-American ERG (AAERG) to support African-American employees; All Access ERG for disability inclusion; Lambda Alliance ERG for LGBTQ employees and allies; and Veteran ERG (VERG) for veterans and supporters.  ERGs are open to all Berkeley Lab employees (an employee does not need to identify as a member of these groups to join an ERG).

The goal of the open house is to inform the Lab community about each ERG, and to encourage employees to participate.  For any questions, please contact
