To attract and maintain a strong workforce, we are proud to recognize diversity in the workplace, especially our LGBT colleagues. With today marking the final day of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, PhRMA is proud to celebrate the diversity of our own and member companies’ LGBT employees by recognizing their important contributions to the drug discovery process.

Diversity in the biopharmaceutical industry is vital as it facilitates openness to new ideas, collaboration and an appreciation of each and every employee’s unique contributions. As a member of the LGBT community myself, I see firsthand how our companies efforts to support inclusion are helping pave the way to new ideas and approaches to researching innovative medicines for patients.
