Berkeley Lab

Your Role in Building a Welcoming and Inclusive Culture

Diversity drives the ideas that unlock our science, according to Berkeley Lab Director Mike Witherell. He calls on all Lab employees to take part in a discussion on changing the culture at the Lab by focusing on four concepts: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability, or IDEA.

IDEA is a key enabler to accomplishing Berkeley Lab’s scientific mission, assisting with true collaboration and teamwork, which is important to us as the home of team science. The Lab’s Chief DEI Officer Lady Idos explains why IDEA is integral to who we are and what we do at the Lab.
