The foundation of a building is critical to the building’s function and longevity. By definition, everything is built on it. The same is true for devices designed at Fermilab: They must be built on sound footing. Many people have heard of the Fermilab Engineering Manual, but few understand that it applies to everyone who designs and builds devices at the lab, not only engineers. The manual outlines the good practices that must go into every design by using a graded approach that is driven by the complexity of the design.
As we close LGBTQ Pride Month and look forward to International LGBT STEM Day celebrations on July 5, Fermilab proudly supports inclusion and recognizes the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community in STEM. Workforce and workplace diversity, equity and inclusion are laboratory and DOE Office of Science priorities.
