Berkeley Lab

About

Welcome to All Access at Berkeley Lab. All Access is an employee resource group that advocates for a more accessible laboratory in design, in spirit and in operation.

We work to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all employees and visitors, and to serve as an information source for applicants, staff, recruiters, managers and supervisors who have questions about disabilities, support and accommodations.

In this way, we seek to increase participation of individuals with disabilities, whether visible or not, in our community, and to build understanding and appreciation of challenges these people face. We see ourselves as part of a larger effort to build a more inclusive, fair and respectful community, knowing that when improvements are made to help one group, everyone benefits.

We will do this through such actions as:

  • Advocating at all levels for greater accessibility and identifying opportunities for improvement
  • Learning about and implementing best practices
  • Reaching out and collaborating with other lab groups, organizations and the broader community  to leverage our resources
  • Communicating with the lab to raise the collective awareness about inclusion
  • Striving to become a leader for disability inclusion in the DOE and national lab community

Organization and Leadership
