Argonne clubs also support an inclusive workplace by providing people with opportunities to connect with one another in fun, informal settings. Social and cultural activities enable people to learn from one another and connect with people outside of their daily work groups. This, in itself, may lead to opportunities and collaborations that benefit both individuals and the laboratory.
