At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), we are committed to taking on the world’s most pressing scientific problems and answering its most elusive questions. We accept bold challenges every day. To make this kind of scientific impact requires the best teams we can assemble. We believe the most successful teams are intentionally created by bringing together people from unique backgrounds and perspectives and cultivating a safe environment where everyone has access to what they need to thrive and feels included, celebrated, and inspired to be at their best.
This commitment to inclusion and belonging is key to unlocking innovation and creativity, and driving our research success. It is also a daily personal commitment and expectation for everyone in our PNNL culture.
PNNL staff are truly the key to our impact, as they volunteer to lead, invest, and participate in our community to develop an inclusive culture focused on belonging. We invite you to take a moment to hear directly from some of our staff about their work and experiences.
PNNL aspires to be a model organization and a valued partner in the communities where we live and work. As a core commitment to that, we seek collaboration and diverse points of view, and recognize and reward our staff who embody these values. From our senior leadership to volunteers throughout our organization, we are dedicated to the PNNL We Culture where we learn, thrive, and grow together as we work toward our mission.
“At PNNL, we are committed to fostering a work environment that fully embraces and values diversity and inclusion. By doing so, we benefit from a breadth of perspectives, insights, and experiences that enables the innovation and creativity one expects of a DOE national laboratory.”
