Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

The Allen Institute is committed to an inclusive culture that encourages, nurtures, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees, collaborators, partners, and communities.

Our Commitment

While elevating and acknowledging diversity, we’re creating a work environment where everyone is respected, valued, and feels safe to express themselves. We will be transparent and accountable for our actions.

Racism and discrimination are pervasive in scientific research and research organizations. We are committed to providing opportunities within the Allen Institute for underrepresented minorities at all levels of our organization.

Different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds create a stronger, inclusive, and innovative work environment that delivers big science and impacts the world.
