We integrate DE&I holistically into Halozyme’s core processes to ensure that it’s not a stand-alone initiative but is an intrinsic part of the organizational DNA. We continually work to build a diverse team that reflects the rich tapestry of global talent, united by a shared passion for making a positive impact on the lives of patients and their families.

We embrace and celebrate the unique talents, backgrounds, and perspectives each team member brings to the table, recognizing that diversity is a catalyst for innovation. In line with our commitment, we have adopted the Biotechnology Innovation Organization’s principles on workforce development, diversity, and inclusion. These principles guide our strategies to foster a workplace culture that nurtures creativity, collaboration, and excellence.

As of December 1, 2023, our dedication to these principles has resulted in a diverse and inclusive employee base. Specifically:

As part of our Elevate leadership training curriculum, we reinforce key DE&I topics with our leaders to provide them with the tools and training they need to support our DE&I efforts. Leaders learn how to prevent unconscious bias and promote trust and psychological safety, among other topics.

While we are proud of our achievements in creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, we recognize that fostering diversity is an ongoing journey. By fostering a culture that values and leverages the diverse strengths of our team, we believe we are better positioned to drive innovation, improve patient outcomes, and contribute meaningfully to the healthcare industry.
