Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

The Naval Nuclear Laboratory recognizes that diversity is crucial to gaining the perspectives and ideas that foster innovation. We strive to build a workforce that values and leverages the talents of all our personnel in an effort to attract and retain the highly skilled workforce needed to support our business and our nation.

We recognize that diversity and inclusion are not just a short-term trend, but a business imperative on which our long-term success depends. Diversity and inclusion begin with our company’s vision and values, and our diversity strategy is to create an inclusive work environment that welcomes, respects, develops and leverages employee differences as a competitive strength.

We have a commitment to small business and supplier diversity, including small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.

Herminio, Electrical Engineer
"Working at NNL as an electrical engineer has been an amazing, challenging, and rewarding career. I have worked in many areas of equipment design, testing, and training, and have worked side by side with Navy crews in the lab and onboard the ships. These experiences have given me the firsthand opportunity to see the impact my work has on the Sailors who protect our freedom, and the meaningful contributions that I make to the security of our nation."
