Empowering Diversity in Research

Our patients are at the heart of everything we do. Putting the patient first guides how we act, helping us make decisions we can be proud of today, and in the future. It also helps us take bolder steps to ensure that all our patients receive the quality health care and treatments they deserve.

One way we are doing this is through our DE&I Clinical Trial Advisory Board, one of our efforts to ensure our clinical trials are accessible and inclusive for everyone. Consisting of a cross-functional, global, and diverse group of employees, the Board is committed to ensuring community and patient-facing materials are culturally competent and create a better understanding of the clinical research process for a diverse audience.

Our Advisory Board is one of many ways we’re incorporating a DE&I agenda not just with our people, but with the patients who rely on our treatments. We're committed to a long-term journey of change in processes, policies, and mindsets. To better understand the Advisory Board’s impact, we asked our board members to share their perspectives on why this initiative is important and what it means to them.

“This board has allowed me to question the social justices and norms that our patients may face who are participating in clinical trial research, but it allows me to better understand how to provide all-encompassing care to those that need us the most.”

“I've also learned how to expand my thinking to see different perspectives and understand the patient journey with different backgrounds.”

"Failing to include diverse populations, we risk missing vital information about how different groups may respond to a treatment, which can lead to disparities in health outcomes.”

“What is clear to me is that there are structural and systemic issues that need to be addressed, and I wanted to be a part of that solution.”

Our Clinical Trial Advisory Board highlights our ongoing dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion and driving change.
