Honoring Diversity at Alkermes as We Further Our Work in Neuroscience

By Renato Chiarella, PhD, Senior Director, Head of Formulation Development and Co-Lead of MOSAIC ERG

At Alkermes, we believe that by incorporating new ideas, perspectives and ways of approaching our work, we expand what we can accomplish – simultaneously benefitting our people, our organization and the patients we seek to serve. For this reason, it’s important to us to consciously cultivate an environment that recognizes and supports one another’s differences and strengths.

As Alkermes works to expand its pharmaceutical development and clinical manufacturing team, a core focus is on the scientific capabilities and technical expertise that we employ to develop novel medicines for the potential treatment of complex neurological and psychiatric conditions. Integral to these efforts, we are working to bring new Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) capabilities to our Waltham site. Underscoring our commitment to maintaining a diverse workforce, our recruitment efforts for these new roles will seek new team members with varied experiences and backgrounds to join us in our pursuit of scientific advancements.

Alkermes is committed to celebrating and embedding diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIB) across our organization. As part of our culture of DIB, our MOSAIC Network is one of five employee resource groups at Alkermes that collectively strive to ensure DIB principles are at the heart of our organization. Designed with intentionality to foster inclusion and create space for all cultures, MOSAIC provides employee education and supports interactive engagement between colleagues, along with participating as an active partner to local and national organizations working on behalf of multicultural communities.

Honoring the diversity of our team and recognizing all that we are able to achieve together is core to #TeamAlkermes’ culture. Through adding and valuing a broad set of voices in our work, we are better able to innovate and yield meaningful, lasting impact.
