Diversity at SLAC

At SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, we believe that a diverse workforce yields more creative, synergistic and effective outcomes. As part of a global community, we recognize that the attainment of our vision of diversity is not only possible, but critical to our viability, to meeting our potential, and most importantly, to the success of the Laboratory.  

  SLAC's EEO Policy Statement   

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is principally an institution of scientific research. We are leaders in exploring frontier questions of science that enable discovery in our chosen fields. We conceive, develop, build and operate pioneering facilities serving an international user community. SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is an Affirmative Action/ Equal Opportunity Employer and supports diversity in the workplace. <<more   


By valuing diversity, SLAC National Laboratory uncovers new perspectives, taps varied knowledge and experience, and generates innovative ideas, suggestions and methods. Diversity includes 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. Managing 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.

Since the founding of the Laboratory in 1962, SLAC understood and respected the fact that our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Our Laboratory unites people of all ethnicities, genders, sexual orientation, soci-economic classes, religions, abilities and ages and empowers them as individuals and as groups.

SLAC's Human Resources Department has the overall responsibility for managing and implementing affirmative action and diversity activities. We appreciate you browsing our website to learn more about SLAC's programs and initiatives. They reflect our long history of commitment to diversity.

We will continue to give careful attention to the important efforts, programs and policies that encourage and support diversity for our staff.
