Diversity and Inclusion

The Frederick National Laboratory is committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive environment. 

Our employees bring diverse cultural and intellectual backgrounds to the table, which enables us to build collaborative teams and drive innovation.

All of us must be a part of uncovering ways to counter frightening illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, and deadly infectious diseases.   

Those diseases do not discriminate. They do not care about your gender, whether you are young or old, if you are wealthy, whether you are from the majority or an underrepresented community, or if you hail from this or another country. That’s why we need a diversity of talent in our search for remedies to the many problems confronting the public’s health. We cannot permit any constraint on finding those answers. There is simply too much at stake for us all.

Our diversity might even be the secret sauce that propels our work and energizes all that we do.
