Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. Belonging.
At Medidata, we have always made it a priority to cultivate a diverse, engaged and equitable community. We embrace and celebrate diversity in all of its varied dimensions – nationality, race, ethnicity, caste, culture, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability, age, citizenship, political ideology, and parental, caregiver, marital and veteran status. We value the varied identities that make us who we are. We are committed to cultivating a culture of equity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace, where all employees feel safe, valued and their voices are head and welcomed.
We strive to reflect the diversity of the patients, caregivers, and customers we serve, and the communities in which we live and work.
Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategy
Medidata’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy focus on four strategic pillars: Attract, Develop, Engage and Connect. Attract focuses on attracting a diverse pipeline of talent. Develop and Engage focus on investing in and developing our people and culture. Connect is about extending our reach into the world of our customers and the communities we live and serve. At Medidata, our initiatives each fit under one of these DEI Strategic Pillars.
Inclusion and Belonging
At Medidata, we strive to build and strengthen an inclusive workplace driven by a culture of connection, purpose, and belonging.
We promote engagement and belonging through cultural awareness celebrations, regional employee engagement councils, employee affinity networks and clubs, employee surveys and focus groups and professional development.
Our BRGs: Culture Champions & Inclusion Ambassadors
Our Business Resource Groups are voluntary, employee-led groups of individuals who share an identity or culture that has historically faced underrepresentation and/or marginalization in society and/or the workplace. BRGs provide a great opportunity for all employees to internally network and connect while supporting enterprise initiatives.
At Medidata, we have 10 BRGS that operate globally and are aligned across four operational pillars: Business Insights and Impact, Recruitment and Retention, Career Growth and Development, and External Community Engagement.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Medidata is committed to creating hope through life sciences by focusing on the health of our planet and people. We seek to play a positive role in our communities and consider the environmental and social impact of our business decisions, products, and programs.
Diversity in Clinical Trials
Our mission is to power smarter treatments and healthier people—and that means all people. Clinical trials must reflect diverse patient representation in all phases of the drug development process to deliver successful treatments for the wider patient population.
We strive to be meaningful drivers of change and ensure that all patients have access to clinical trials and treatments regardless of their ethnicity, geographic location, or other social determinants of health.
We know the value that diverse teams bring to Medidata. We strive to have our workforce reflect the communities in which we serve. Our diversity, inclusiveness, and ability to foster equality with our practices fuels innovation and sparks our passion and commitment to patient health.
