We're good humans
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
- Improve our hiring and retention of Black, Indigenous, and Latinx (BIPOC) employees specifically
- 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
- 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.
