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
