Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We believe the more diverse voices we have at Neurocrine Biosciences, the better we can work to fulfill our vision of delivering life-changing treatments to people with serious, under-addressed disorders. With a culture that emphasizes collaboration and innovation as core values, we thrive as a company when we embrace unique ideas and a range of perspectives. We know that diverse teams acting inclusively produce the meaningful advances to meet our patients’ needs and elevate the communities we serve.
Commitment to DE&I starts from the top, with the Board, where three out of nine members are women and one is from an underrepresented racial and ethnic group. As a signatory of Biocom California’s DE&I Member Pledge, we have committed to taking action to accelerate diversity, equity and inclusion in life sciences. We also have an executive in a full-time role dedicated to accelerating our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.
Neurocrine Biosciences supports innovation, encourages collaboration, and is dedicated to the continued growth and development of all our employees. Employees are encouraged to participate in our Neurocrine Nexus program, which includes committees that focus on company events and culture, career development, volunteer opportunities, wellness programs, and more.
Neurocrine Biosciences engages all employees, including the CEO and Management Committee, in Unconscious Bias Training. Our sustained efforts to foster a community of listening, learning, and meaningful action among employees include a DE&I library of resources, external guest speakers, and communications and events in recognition of important observances such as Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month, Pride Month, and Juneteenth.
