Amgen's Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Priorities and Status
With endorsement from senior management and engagement with senior leaders across the organization, Amgen has implemented a global strategy designed to leverage our diversity and create a more inclusive workplace. Our priorities are:
* Executive level: Executive directors and above
**Management level: Sr. Managers & Directors
NOTE: Data as of December 2021. To align with U.S. government reporting requirements, data on this website uses the traditional gender categories of male and female. We deeply respect that gender is not binary; reporting in this manner should not represent our position on the issue. Totals may not add up to 100 percent due to rounding or employees who have not reported their gender and/or race/ethnicity.
Our strategy is intended to help Amgen successfully navigate a complex global marketplace as we bring more medicines to more patients around the world. Amgen is setting goals in order to improve our focus. These goals will also serve as a baseline for measuring our progress toward a more inclusive workplace.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are a tool we use to promote and support, as well as illustrate, the impact and value that diversity has on our business. There are currently eleven Global ERGs at Amgen, all with executive sponsorship, that are organized around a primary diversity dimension. We provide leaders and managers with training and tools to lead a diverse workforce and create an inclusive environment.
