Diversity matters at Amgen. We believe that an environment of inclusion fosters innovation, which drives our ability to serve patients. Our global presence is strengthened by having a workforce that reflects the diversity of the patients we serve.
To ensure our ongoing success, Amgen is committed to promoting and maintaining an inclusive, high-performing culture where all team members embrace and leverage each other's talents and backgrounds. Our commitment to diversity is articulated in our values and reflected in every part of the organization.
Diversity and Inclusion at Amgen is about all employees taking responsibility for creating a welcoming, inclusive and productive work environment where all employees feel valued, regardless of their differences, and feel that they are able to contribute to their full potential.

With endorsement from senior management and engagement with senior leaders across the organization, Amgen has implemented a global strategy designed to leverage our diversity and create a more inclusive workplace. Our priorities are:
- Increasing the percentage of women in manager and above roles
- Increasing the percentage of women in senior vice president and above roles, which is also defined as our operating team
- Increasing the percentage of African Americans in science titles
- Increasing the percentage of African Americans and Hispanics in executive director and above roles
This new strategy is intended to help Amgen successfully navigate a complex global marketplace as we bring more medicines to more patients around the world. Amgen is setting goals in order to improve our focus. These goals will also serve as a baseline for measuring our progress toward a more inclusive workplace.
Employee Resource Groups (ERG's) are a tool we use to promote and support as well as illustrate the impact and value that has on our business. There are currently ten Global ERG's at Amgen, all with executive sponsorship, that are organized around a primary diversity dimension. We provide leaders and managers with training and tools to lead a diverse workforce and create an inclusive environment.
