Diversity Drives Innovation


A Brighter Future is Possible With You

Complex challenges demand a spectrum of insights and experiences to solve. Battelle’s diversity strengthens our approach to every project across the globe.

HBCU Consortium

Innovation is driven by diversity of lived experiences, skillsets and thought. We are proud to invest in the future scientists and engineers studying at HBCUs.

Our effort to build meaningful, long-term collaborative relationships with the country’s leading historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) began in 2021 through partnerships and investments that enabled students from Bowie State University and Morgan State University to engage in research opportunities as they progress from classroom to employment.
