Biocom Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that supports life science innovation by strengthening the workforce and leaders of tomorrow, launched its first biennial report, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in California’s Life Science Industry.” With more than 350 respondents, this report represents the most comprehensive diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) data gathered across life science companies in California – providing a framework for the industry to develop an actionable DEI plan. Additional life science organizations Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bayer Pharmaceuticals and Biocom California contributed to developing the report.
“At Biocom California, everything we do begins with our mission – to accelerate life science success,” said Joe Panetta, president and CEO of Biocom California. “To fulfill our mission, we must embrace diversity, equity and inclusion as key drivers of excellence and innovation. It has taken far too long for all industries, including the life sciences, to understand that significant effort must be invested to achieve the goal of a truly diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce. This report is a testament to our commitment, and I anticipate strong and actionable steps will come from Biocom Institute and industry leaders across the state.”
