In addition to our core business of improving health outcomes through our medicines, we recognize our ability to positively impact society through our actions, investments and people.
We value and are focused on doing our part to build a more just, resilient and inclusive society, both within our own workplace and in the communities where we operate. Beyond Amgen, we are working with community leaders to explore and help address deeply rooted barriers to economic prosperity, equity, and social justice, as well as expand economic opportunities within the communities in which we operate through our supplier initiatives. We also collaborate with teachers and other partners to reimagine science education, improve science literacy, and empower diverse thinkers. And, we are engaging with diverse suppliers and supporting local communities through job creation with the potential for better wages.
