Naval Research Laboratory voted a Best Diversity Company 2011

By Donna McKinney

For the fifth year in a row, Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine has named the Naval Research Laboratory a Best Diversity Company, based on a reader's choice survey.

In the spring 2011, magazine readers and website visitors were asked to identify the corporations, government agencies and other organizations that do the best work in diversity. The organizations chosen were ranked at the top for their support of minorities and women, their attention to work/life balance, and their support of supplier diversity.

NRL is the Department of the Navy's corporate laboratory. NRL conducts a broad program of scientific research, technology, and advanced development. The Laboratory, with a total complement of nearly 2,500 personnel, is located in southwest Washington, D.C., with other major sites at the Stennis Space Center, Miss.; and Monterey, Calif.
