LLE Director’s Diversity Statement

We succeed because we are a technically diverse organization. We will excel because we will grow as a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization.

I wholeheartedly believe the above because I have witnessed the power of diversity to strengthen an organization. I have seen the inspiring creativity whenever everyone is included. I have seen the engaged culture when everyone is treated equitably to maximize their individual success.

We can reflect on the University of Rochester’s motto and values, Meliora, which summarize our journey and the culture we aspire to. Please join me in this journey, welcome everyone to LLE as a valued member of the team, and let us work as a team to provide an inclusive and equitable culture.

It is a privilege to lead LLE now and into an exciting future.

Director, Laboratory for Laser Energetics
