DEIA Organizational Structure at Argonne



The Lab Director's Council serves as an advisory committee and provides recommendations to the laboratory director on diversity, inclusion, equity and accessibility initiatives and priorities.

The council is composed of employees from each of the programmatic and mission support directorates, a postdoctoral student, leaders of all laboratory employee resources groups, and the Women in Science and Technology (WIST) program initiator.

Employee Resource Groups
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are grassroots groups formed and directed by employees who join together on the basis of shared characteristics or life experiences. ERGs serve as a resource for both individuals and the Laboratory by fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment that contributes to Argonne’s mission and promotes understanding and respect.
