Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council


The mission of the Electron-Ion Collider Directorate's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Council is to promote excellence in research and operations through a diverse workforce and an inclusive and supportive workplace for people of all experiences, talents and identities, e.g., gender, race, sexual orientation, age, cultural background, or job classification.


The Council's role is to advise and support EIC Directorate leadership in developing and implementing DE&I initiatives to improve the Directorate according to our mission. While the primary scope of this Council is the EIC Directorate, opportunities for broader institutional improvements will also be considered. This work is done in collaboration with Brookhaven Lab's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
