Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Vision of Success

The Allen Institute is committed to an inclusive culture which encourages, nurtures, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees, collaborators, partners, and communities. While elevating and acknowledging diversity, we will create 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.

We are in this together

As a scientific organization building a world class culture of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEI&B), Allen Institute employees collaborated to create a logo that captures our journey together as we move forward with purpose and impactful intention for the future. Within the Erlenmeyer flask, you will find elements of who we are as a whole, including our affinity groups as well as terms related to our mission statement, culture, values, core principles, and our DEI&B Vision of Success.
