Women in STEM


Our new feature, "Women @ The Lab", showcases a few of our talented and dedicated employees at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. View profiles of women at the Lab, sharing what inspired them to work in STEM, what excites them about their work at LBNL, sharing ideas for getting more underrepresented groups engaged in STEM, offering tips, and more. 

We hope that the stories of these, and many more, women in STEM can inspire others as they think about the future. Only 24% of the STEM workforce is female, an alarming gap as over 51% of the workforce overall is female. We can and should share our own STEM stories to help engage others and offer our voices on how our STEM careers have impacted us.
