Astella’s team members understand how vital a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment having is to a company’s success. As such Astellas has developed a multipronged approach to ensuring these values are represented at every level of the organization.

Additionally, managers are provided with training focused on recognizing diversity, building inclusive teams, and minimizing unconscious and conscious biases in hiring, management, and promotion practices. Astellas uses various best practices in recruiting talent including diverse interview panels and external strategic partnerships to reach diverse communities of candidates. Once people join their team they are welcomed into a culture of inclusion created through programs and activities like the annual Pride Month celebrations, Ally Week program, expanded Military Leave policies, Disability Awareness month activities, Women’s Month Summit activities and multicultural toolkits. Astellas also utilizes mentorship and sponsorship programs to encourage the growth and development of top talent. Partnerships are also critical to Astellas’s diversity and inclusion goals. The company partners with other organizations that support the principals of diversity and inclusion. Astellas has subscribed to the commitments adopted by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), PhRMA, and the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge
