Commitment to DiversityBuilding an inclusive and diverse workforce is critical to enabling Gilead’s mission – and, ultimately, will help us create a better, healthier world. We are highly committed to creating an inclusive culture, one that enables all people to do their best work and that is reflective of the diversity of our patients. At the same time, we recognize that we need to do more to accelerate our progress – for our people, for our business and for the world.
Gilead’s overall Inclusion & Diversity aspirations are:
- Be the employer of choice for diverse talent
- Foster an inclusive culture where differences are leveraged to innovate and enable our mission
- Be respected for equitable and socially responsible practices
Our success depends on every one of our employees, and the ways in which we differ are among our greatest sources of strength. These include visible and non-visible attributes, such as race, gender, gender identity, age, ethnicity, people with disabilities, appearance, thinking styles, beliefs, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, and education, among others. Inclusion at Gilead is a core value and means creating and fostering a work environment where our differences are valued, and people feel involved, respected and connected.
Vision for the FutureIn recent years, we’ve been evolving the company and our strategy to deliver more benefits to more patients. We’re well on our way to achieving our goals this decade and beyond, as we continue to pursue bold ambitions across multiple therapeutic areas. We’re playing a key role in ending the HIV epidemic for everyone, everywhere. We’re working to eliminate hepatitis C as a public health problem by 2030. In oncology, we’re on track to deliver transformative therapies in more than 20+ indications, impact more than 500,000 patient lives and be a top 10 oncology company by 2030.
“At the heart of what we do is our culture and our employees. Our culture is founded on a passion and dedication to creating possible, working tirelessly to improve care for Canadians. We encourage our team to bring their whole self to work, and we invest in employee wellbeing through a variety of resources, programs, and activities. We are committed to creating an inclusive workplace that is representative of the diverse communities we serve. We know that diverse perspectives are one of our greatest strengths, and diverse ideas fuel innovation. Our employees are actively engaged in and shape our Inclusion & Diversity efforts through our employee resource groups, which support recruiting, professional development, culture-building, business impact, and community cultivation. Our teams across Canada know that at Gilead, they can make a real impact on the lives of patients - going beyond the medicine as we work to help remedy health inequities and other barriers to care.”
