LCLS Intern Poster Session


Only about a third of the people in STEM-related fields are persons of color, and men still outnumber women by four-to-one in a variety of fields, especially in computer science and engineering. Those who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community still face discrimination in the workplace, and others-- such as veterans and persons with disabilities-- still face many barriers in the hiring process. 

SLAC and LCLS are commited to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion (E.D.I) in STEM. As a part of this ongoing effort, the SLAC/LCLS Symposium on E.D.I aims to educate our interns, staff and scientists about where STEM stands today in terms of diversity and inclusion and encourages them to take steps towards making their workplaces more diverse and inclusive in an equitable and effective manner. Panelists and speakers will share their experiences and insights while through workshops our audience will gain the skills they need to become advocates themselves.
