Diversity & Inclusion

We’re On a Journey

We are inclusive. We celebrate multiple approaches and points of view.

We believe diversity drives innovation. So we’re building a culture where difference is valued.

We take a holistic approach. We’re always growing our network of people, programs and tools all designed to help employees grow and manage their careers.

We foster both a top-down and grassroots approach. This gives us the freedom to address the broadest set of initiatives.

“We drive innovation when we all contribute to an inclusive culture that attracts a diverse group of the best and brightest talent, and inspires everyone to freely contribute to their maximum potential and make a meaningful difference for patients every day.”

Alexander Hardy, CEO, Genentech
