Inclusion Is Everyone’s Responsibility
We are on a mission to improve patients’ health by accelerating life-saving R&D with AI. We believe that to achieve our mission, we must follow an interdisciplinary approach, which requires a team with a variety of expertise and lived experiences. Therefore, not only do we believe DEI is the right thing to do, it is an integral part of our business strategy, ingrained in our values, and critical for our success.
Work is a fundamental aspect of living a meaningful life, and as an employer, we aim to create an environment where employees feel safe and fulfilled. We acknowledge systems of oppression and marginalization exist in the world, and as a company, we work to interrupt those systems. We have a responsibility to build an environment for team members that is compassionate, understanding, and free from discrimination. Therefore, we expect every team member to actively embrace this, and engage across differences, strive to understand one another, and collaborate to make BenchSci antiracist, fair, and harmonious for all identities so that each person can do the best work [of their life].
BenchShe+ focuses on the intersectional needs of women at all points of their careers at BenchSci. We welcome all to join in allyship of building an equitable future for women.
Black@BenchSci is a brave space where Black-identifying team members will be able to shed the armor often needed to navigate the everyday work landscape and show up authentically to share, collaborate, experience, and stretch both professionally and personally.

"I was drawn to get involved with Black@BenchSci because building community has always been one of my core values. I wanted to be a part of cultivating a space where people who looked like me could come together and feel that they could be themselves. Leaning into the people-first approach is a key component in the ERGs @ BenchSci, and that makes all the difference."

"There is an unspoken bond that naturally occurs when you find someone who looks like you, identifies as you identify, or has had similar lived experiences. The belonging and safety in that familiarity is exhilarating, and I am proud that we have intentionally created those opportunities here at BenchSci."
