Culture of inclusion

Prism, the Lab’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) Employee Resource Group (ERG), fosters an inclusive workplace culture that supports the LGBTQ+ employee base.


Prism provides and promotes LGBTQ+ visibility among staff and with management about current workplace and social issues that affect the LGBTQ+ community.

WHAT we do

Through networking, educational events, outreach, and more, Prism strives to create a safe space for LGBTQ+ employees while maintaining diversity in thoughts and ideas across the Laboratory.

HOW to get involved

All Lab staff—LGBTQ+ and allies—are welcome to join and support this ERG. If you are interested in participating in any of our meetings or events, please contact prismboard@lanl.gov.
