The JGI fosters a diverse workforce—in experience, perspective, background—and a culture of inclusion for scientific excellence and groundbreaking innovations. These efforts align with Berkeley Lab’s Principles of Stewardship and are informed by the practices of the Inclusion Diversity Equity Accountability (IDEA) Office, and the Lab tradition of multidisciplinary teams working together to bring science solutions to the world. The JGI’s external efforts include sharing multiple voices and perspectives on science stories, serving as Lab ambassadors and mentoring the next-generation workforce.
