The Berkeley Lab’s DEI office is pleased to announce the launch of the new Employee Resource Group (ERG) website: https://berkeleylab-erg.lbl.gov/
What is an Employee Resource Group (ERG) you ask? ERGs are groups of employees who join together based on shared characteristics or life experiences to provide fellowship, friendship and support, enhance career and personal development and contribute to the organization’s vision and values. ERGs promote diversity and equality by raising awareness and ensuring that group members have a voice in the organization.
At Berkeley Lab, our ERGs also allow employees to participate directly with our ongoing IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity, accountability) initiatives and assist in fully integrating IDEA into the Lab’s day-to-day business practices through events, strategic initiatives and policy-related goals.
The new site has a page for each of the groups listed below and the pages include the group’s mission statement, upcoming events, member highlights, contact information and a link to register to become a member.
Please take a look, learn more about our ERGs and consider getting involved!
