Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Takeda, the commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) is a personal one. Our team is one that spans over 80 different countries, each bringing unique backgrounds and experiences. These diverse perspectives reflect the perspectives of the patients who rely on the treatments we develop.

That’s why we aim to build a more inclusive and equitable environment. In doing so, everyone within Takeda can collaborate in a space free of fear or judgment. This is a culture where all are free to speak up. Where each employee can contribute and grow as an individual while feeling a sense of belonging at Takeda.

Creating a sense of belonging

Hayden Majajas, Takeda Head of Global DE&I, explores the importance of belonging in the workplace — from building psychological safety to cultivating a space that encourages groundbreaking new ideas.

Takeda Resource Groups

Takeda Resource Groups (TRGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups composed of members with similar backgrounds and interests. Together, they collaborate to build professional networks, support their communities and educate allies who are ready to learn more.

TRGs are open to all employees, not just those who identify with a particular community, and play a vital role in building a more inclusive environment.
