Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Precision Medicine for ​Everyone

Our vision at TGen is centered around bridging genomic research with medical advancements that directly impact individuals, their families, and their communities. To achieve this, a working environment that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive to all is essential.

The Goal of DEI

Our goal is to facilitate a more informed conversation at TGen and create avenues for organizational dialogue and learning around diversity, equity and inclusion. We want to ensure everyone is heard and that TGen becomes an even better place to work.

Events & Celebrations

Shakespeare may have warned, “Beware the Ides of March," but theatre and reality often compete. Despite the bard's claim, March is a month to celebrate, as we lift up women, faith, and on the 17th, a wee bit of blarney and luck ... but who doesn't need that every now and then?

Our Mission

The DEI Council is committed to the core values of respect for all ideas and perspectives, strong community, and mindful listening; and exists to cultivate an environment built on trust, sensitivity, and diversity where all talents, viewpoints, and inquiries are welcome. We are also committed to communication and education efforts to reduce unconscious bias, hold people accountable for their words and actions, and promote empathy.
