The data below includes all Berkeley Lab employees* as of September 30, 2022.
The categories here follow federal reporting requirements. These categories are not disaggregated in a way that expresses the full range of employee identities (such as non-binary gender or other gender minority identities). It also may aggregate people with diverse backgrounds and experiences into one category (such as Black combined with African-American, or Native Hawaiian combined with Pacific Islander). Our goal is to conduct additional demographic analyses in the near future.
Data for our student population is cumulative for FY 2022. Percentages of individual groups will not add up to 100 percent due to some employees choosing not to provide us with their demographic data.

* Employee classes: Career, term, limited, faculty, rehired retire, postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, and student assistant.
Employees identifying themselves with two or more racial categories or at least one non-White racial category and Hispanic/Latino, are counted in the “Two or More” category.
Graduate students and undergraduate students are those students who work at and are paid by the laboratory. If a student from FY22 became an employee during FY22, they are counted once and as an employee.
