MyFamily @ Berkeley Lab
The MyFamily @ Berkeley Lab website provides a centralized location for parents and others to find information on services related to children, youth, elders, pets, and self-care.
The site is a collaborative effort between Women Scientists and Engineers Council (WSEC) and the IDEA Office to support the work/life balance of our Berkeley Lab employees and their families.
The resources you will find here highlight services found at Berkeley Lab, as well as outside the laboratory. We do not recommend or endorse any particular resource on this site; however, we do suggest the careful review and evaluation of services that best meet the needs of your family.
