Diversity and Belonging
A Commitment to Our Employees
At Medidata, we view the diversity of our employees as a tremendous asset. We seek to maintain our reputation as an employer of choice by reinforcing high levels of employee motivation, commitment, and a sense of belonging. We value an inclusive work environment where everyone’s ideas are sought out and considered, and we learn from our mistakes to leverage diversity that sparks innovation, opportunity for growth, and development.
Listening to diverse employee voices helps us build a culture of belonging
Unconscious Bias can lead to many undesirable outcomes, it can lead to differences in the way we attract, hire, develop and retain employees from underrepresented groups. Awareness and active engagement in efforts to reduce bias is a core component of our diversity and belonging strategy. We have rolled out a company-wide workshop for all employees, followed by intact team sessions, to reinforce learnings that elevate the Medidata culture code.
Medidata is committed to investing in programs that we believe will influence and impact the advancement of women in technology & the life sciences. In partnership with the HBA Gender Parity Collaborative & the UN Global Compact, we have set goals to achieve true policy change.
Our Business Resource Groups (BRG’s) bring a diverse perspective to our business which has successfully led us to be stronger, more customer-centric, innovative, and collaborative. They have goals that are aligned to attract, develop, and retain our talent, our most valuable asset.
