The U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has announced a new Ombuds service for staff with work-related conflicts. The service will be provided by the UC Berkeley Ombuds Office, led by Sara Thacker, beginning on Thursday, April 1.
The appointment seems to mark a separation of the Lab's Ombuds and Workforce Diversity programs subsequent to the passing of Harry Reed who was instrumental in founding both offices. The new website for the Berkeley Lab Ombuds Office features a welcome video from Thacker. (Berkeley Lab News.)
