At APL, we strive to create an environment that supports the diversity of people and ideas at the Lab. These groups enhance work life by providing outlets where people can express themselves in a safe space, make connections, accomplish goals, celebrate their backgrounds, share their culture with colleagues and enjoy a collegial environment. The Lab also provides a suite of diversity, equity and inclusion trainings and courses for staff members interested in developing inclusive skills, behaviors and practices.
Creativity, diversity of thought and the inclusion of new ideas are central to APL’s focus on prioritizing career development for all our staff members. Our leadership courses and programs specifically address fostering an environment where equal opportunity, diversity, inclusivity and respectful peer interactions are central to our success. APL’s definition of leadership excellence includes the promotion of an open and transparent culture, inclusivity and the courage to seek divergent ideas and stimulate constructive debates.
