African American Affinity Group

Our Mission

The African-American Affinity Group (AAAG) exists to provide a forum where employees and guests can promote awareness of the Black, African, African-American and Caribbean cultures, share professional insights, acquire information and provide leadership on their careers and work environment within BNL. We aspire to increase the presence and leadership ability of our community by building strong strategic alliances with laboratory management and facilitating the hiring, retention, education, mentorship and career advancement of African-American talent at all levels, thereby assisting the Lab to achieve its diversity goals.
