General Lab Information

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council


Activities of the Council focus on recruitment, education, outreach, staff life, coordination, and communication with the goal of developing a psychologically safe and respectful environment for all at BSD. We measure our impact based on the specific activities defined yearly by this Council. This mission aligns with the DEI initiatives of the Department of Energy and Brookhaven National Lab and supports the objective of fostering a diverse and inclusive research environment. This Charter (PDF) outlines the logistical procedures of the Council, with specific strategies and items to be voted on.


BSD will continue to enrich the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion culture within Brookhaven National Laboratory. The BSD DEI Council will perform activities and advise on policies that sustain a diverse, talented, and collaborative BSD workforce, establishing itself as a dynamic, creative, and engaged cross-functional organization.
