Celebrating our diverse histories
Migrants have been essential to Los Alamos research for over 75 years. The Manhattan Project, the Lab’s original mission, included migrants from across Europe, including Poland, Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Czech Republic, Russia, Denmark, Switzerland, and Italy. Today, we continue to take great pride in our culturally diverse workforce. We believe the collaboration of a multi-national community is at the heart of each of our successes and employ students and staff from around the globe. Further, we believe our research accomplishments are a direct reflection of the opportunities offered by inclusive philosophy and practices.
On 4 December 2000, the United Nations General Assembly, taking into account the large and increasing number of migrants in the world, proclaimed December 18 to be International Migrants Day. Join us for an afternoon at the Bradbury to experience some of the many invaluable contributions made by migrants in pursuit of our global security mission.
