Pacific Northwest National Laboratory embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion. It’s the right thing to do and also is vital to our mission. Diversity sparks innovation and enhances everything we do.
“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.”
– Steven Ashby, Laboratory Director
We aspire to be a model organization and a valued partner in the communities where we live and work. We respect and value individual differences among colleagues and neighbors. We seek collaboration and diverse points of view, and recognize and reward our staff who embody these values. In all these ways, we demonstrate our desire to attract and retain a diverse workforce.
To encourage inclusion, our Employee Resource Groups offer professional, educational, and social activities that provide a culturally diverse and collaborative environment for PNNL employees. The groups host speakers and events, connect with community groups, share resources, and create safe spaces.
