Our diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) vision statement

Our diversity improves the well-being of our people and improves innovation and collaboration. We celebrate the visible and invisible attributes that make each person unique, including race, gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity, ability, religion, life experiences, and other identities. We are committed to aligning our culture and business procedures to be a shining example of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging for all as we work together to drive cures for type 1 diabetes (T1D).

I am fulfilled by knowing that I am a part of the team who is making life better for millions of people.”
