ERG Leadership

pride flag banner

Civic and social progress in LGBTQ+ equity is rooted in grassroots organizing and grassroots leadership. Our ERG leadership structure is guided by this foundation and manifests through a Council of leaders from all corners of SLAC. In alignment with our Mission Statement, we are interested in exploring how members of the SLAC community can use this form of leadership to establish a welcoming and inclusive culture for LGBTQ+ and other marginalized communities. We believe this structure can enable and support advancing awareness and understanding of queer issues, advocate for LGBTQ+ Lab employees, and foster group identity and vibrant Lab community.

Council:

Jen Arthur, SSRL Administration (ally)

I am an administrative assistant working with Postdocs and Graduate students at SSRL. I’ve worked in this role for four years and used to work in electronics at SSRL from 1996-2002. When I lived in Australia for 13 years, I worked as a middle school teacher covering everything from English, to Math and Science, Sexual Health Education and Social Studies. I currently work remotely from Santa Cruz, where I live with my husband and two sons. Personal pronouns: she/her

Sergio Carbajo, LCLS Science

I am a cis-male queer scientist at LCLS and recently naturalized US citizen, bridging expertise across disciplines in photon sciences and accelerator physics. I am also devoted to promoting equity and representation in academic research. I love to surf and spend my evenings playing and composing music. Personal pronouns: he/his

Molly Glover, SLAC Communications (ally)

I’m on the Outreach & Events team in Communications, currently working remotely except for a few special projects. I’ve been at SLAC for just over 4 years, and I truly enjoy being part of this complex and brilliant community. Before SLAC, I worked in San Francisco at an event planning company for about 10 years. I grew up in Berkeley, CA, and I love the Bay Area and Northern California. Personal pronouns: she/her

Jeremy Mock, AD Engineering

I am an Accelerator Controls Engineer working at SLAC for about 5 years.  My husband and I have been together for 6 years, married for 4.  Together as a same-sex couple, we were able to navigate through the family based green card process as he became a permanent resident through our marriage.  So many people before us fought for our rights so the system could work for us, and I try to find ways to ensure that it will continue to work for future LGBTQ+ people. Personal pronouns: he/him

Greg Stewart, Graphic Designer, Communications

I'm a graphic designer in the Communications group, where for almost 15 years I've helped visualize the science at SLAC. I work remotely full-time from Oregon, where I live with my husband and daughter. I love baking, traveling, enjoying the outdoors and am an avid Star Trek fan. Personal pronouns: he/his
