Our 600+ summer interns may be working from home, but they're "going the distance" to explore Earth and space with NASA. Read about their experiences as NASA-JPL's first class of remote interns and see how they are finding ways to persevere:
Today we hosted a virtual panel with our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) for our JPL interns. Discussion ranged from life on Lab, career insight, and how ERGs help create an inclusive environment at JPL. Participating in the panel were representatives from the Black Excellence Strategic Team (B.E.S.T.), Veterans, Amigos Unidos, Spectrum, Asian American Council, and the Advisory Council for Women. #LifeatJPL
Due to teleworking, the #PrideMonth banners on Lab are digital this year!
