Gender Identity & Transitioning 

At Berkeley Lab, we are committed to conducting great science, fostering technological advancements to solve the world’s most challenging problems, and to answering its most elusive questions. Just as science reveals nature’s diversity, science organizations reveal their own nature by the diversity and inclusion they foster. Diversity of people and thought is part of our unique social fabric and a key to our research success. It is also a daily and personal commitment — and an expectation. Each employee has a role to play. Every employee has a responsibility to act. We believe in Berkeley Lab’s mission to share the benefits of scientific discovery with the world. We also respect the differences in our workplace community.
