We're good humans
who are all-in.

Every day.

diversity, equity & inclusion

Diversity isn't a goal, it's a necessity

We believe that difference powers innovation. Every day we face the challenging and the complex: rare diseases, how therapeutic treatments work, even a system that isn't ready for new forms of care.

We take on the hard stuff and don't fly away from a challenge, so racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and other systems of oppression don't get a pass here. At bluebird, diversity, equity and inclusion empower us to act courageously, care deeply, and dream boldly to impact people in big ways.

Progress, not perfection

We are at a pivotal moment in society and our nest, so bluebird has taken a deep, introspective look at ourselves as individuals and as a company. Our work calls us to reimagine what's possible — that includes challenging inequity in the world and our own environment. We understand where we have done well, and even more importantly, uncovered opportunities to do — and be — better. These are the commitments we've made to advance equity and justice at bluebird:
  1. Improve our hiring and retention of Black, Indigenous, and Latinx (BIPOC) employees specifically
  2. Increase retention and belonging by utilizing data, existing surveys, focus groups, listening tours, and ERG partnerships to better understand the experiences of underrepresented groups and make improvements accordingly
  3. Lead with analytics to identify where systemic issues exist in our promotions, hiring, pay and other people practices and inform targeted structural and behavioral changes to mitigate and eliminate bias and barriers wherever they exist

We persist for purpose

We can't accept anything less than a culture where everyone feels accepted, understood and safe. So, we're proud to support our employee-led resource groups in fostering safe spaces and advocating for real, lasting change.
