Last week, Computing Sciences joined other satellite locations around the lab participating in a call for thoughts on equity, the “e” in Berkeley Lab’s IDEA. CS Staff were encouraged to share their thoughts anonymously via a sticky-notes station set up in the lobby of Building 59.

On Wednesday, August 28, the focus will be on accountability. CS staff are encouraged to anonymously share their thoughts (in 10 words or less) on this question: "What is one thing you can do to be accountable for accountability on your team?"  

Once again, staff may post a sticky note response in the Building 59 lobby. Or, choose one of three other ways to make their voices heard:

  • In the cafeteria, write a response and stick it on the inclusion window in the lobby.
  • Text LABIDEA to 22333 once, then text a response.
  • Visit https://pollev.com/labidea and answer the question.

The responses will be collated and shared on the Berkeley Lab employee news platform, Elements.


About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
