Diversity at SLAC

Since the founding of the Laboratory in 1962, diversity of thought has enabled our Laboratory to uncover new perspectives that generate innovative ideas, suggestions and methods.  We define diversity as including but is not limited to: age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities/qualities, race, sexual orientation, educational background, geographical location, income, marital status, military experience, parental status, religious beliefs, work experience, and job classification. Believing in diversity means promoting inclusion, creating an environment where all differences are valued, and one in which each employee can develop to her or his full potential.

Diversity at SLAC focuses on a set of qualities broader than race and gender. In the context of the workplace, valuing diversity means creating a workplace that respects and includes differences, recognizing the unique contributions that individuals can make, and creating a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees.

We appreciate your interest in SLAC and are commited to cultivating an environment where you feel respected and will be encouraged to bring and be your very best...everyday.
