Our Approach to DEI
At Regeneron, we are driven by a strong sense of purpose. Our work in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is core to our mission, our culture and our commitment to patients.
Our DEI strategy of “Better Workplace, Better Science, Better World” provides a framework to advance our talent, fuel our innovation pipeline and deliver more value to partners, our communities and our shareholders. It also underscores our commitment and responsibility as an employer, a global leader in science and a citizen of the world to advance DEI in order to help make the world healthier.
