Diversity & inclusion
We value difference. We treat everyone with empathy and humility
We foster a culture that is equitable, purposeful, diverse, and inclusive.
Everyone feels part of the conversation and is valued for their differences and unique strengths.
Inclusive mindsets are role modeled in our leadership behaviors.
D&I is integrated across the employee life cycle and embedded in our business strategy and metrics.
Our policies, practices, and processes create a level playing field for opportunities and benefits.
D&I across every level of the organization
Our Avalere Health employee networks play a critical role in fostering our culture in the work that they do.
Our networks offer our team members a safe and confidential space to discuss issues affecting them. The groups are a place for like-minded people and provide a centered space for the communities that they support, as well as vacancies for allies to get involved and learn about how to support the group.
Each of our dedicated groups–on gender equality, diverse ability, race/ethnicity, family, mental health, and LGBTQ+ colleagues-are sponsored by a senior executive to provide advocacy, guidance, and support.
Our networks empower our team members to recognize inequalities and uncover novel opportunities for our biopharmaceutical, medical technology, and wellness clients clients to build a healthier world for diverse patient populations.
Building a healthier world across the globe
Like many areas of society, inequalities are pervasive across healthcare.
At Avalere Health, we empower our team members with the knowledge and skills needed to help our clients understand, reach, and engage marginalized patient groups.
By equipping our teams with the tools to recognize inequalities, we can uncover novel opportunities for our biopharmaceutical, medical technology, and wellness clients to build a healthier world for every patient.
