Culture of inclusion

The Laboratory supports LGBTQ+ Pride by promoting an open and honest workplace. Read about how Los Alamos National Laboratory celebrated Pride Month.


The mission, purpose, and primary goals of the Lab’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer+ (LGBTQ+) Employee Resource Group are to promote a positive and vibrant culture in support of the Laboratory’s LGBTQ+ employee base and its straight allies.

The ERG promotes an understanding of the impact of positive visibility and alignment to the Laboratory’s goals with the goals of its LGBTQ+ employees.

The ERG uses active and engaging discussion panels between Lab leaders and employees in an effort to raise enlightenment of current work and social issues that affect the LGBTQ+ community. Moreover, the group creates a safe space for LGBTQ+ employees while maintaining diversity in thoughts and ideas across the Laboratory.

WHAT we do

The LANL LGBTQ+ ERG’s program initiatives will include outreach programs that provide education to both the local community and Lab-sponsored employee events.

The group’s goals include outreach to potential LGBTQ+ Lab new hires, as well as providing educational resources for special events that directly impact the LGBTQ+ employee base and its allies.

HOW to get involved
All LGBTQ+ Lab community members, employees and allies are welcome to join and support this ERG.  If you are interested in participating in any of our meetings or events, please contact Michael Davis at mcdavis@lanl.gov.
