Berkeley Lab

Area & Division Efforts

Berkeley Lab has seven Areas (Biosciences, Computing Sciences, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Energy Sciences, Energy Technologies, Operations, Physical Sciences) and over 30 Divisions – click here to view our organizational chart.

In addition to our Labwide councils, task forces, and Employee Resource Groups related to inclusion, diversity, equity, and accountability (IDEA), Berkeley Lab also has IDEA committees for some individual Areas and Divisions.  These groups approach IDEA at the local level, assessing areas of opportunity and ensuring accountability for progress.

Berkeley Lab Areas and Divisions with IDEA committees are listed below:
