Ensuring Inclusivity for Researchers

NREL joins the 16 other U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories to support name-change requests so researchers of all genders—and transgender researchers specifically—can rightfully claim ownership of past work. Through this process, researchers can be known in their respective fields primarily through their merits as published authors.
