Diversity, equity and inclusion are vital to JAX culture.
No matter where you work at JAX, each of us brings a unique perspective and set of experiences that fuels creativity, sparks innovation and drives our science in ways that positively impacts both the global biomedical community and society at large.
Creating a culture of inclusivity requires conscious effort, thoughtful conversations and ongoing education. We are committed to fostering a welcoming environment where every team member feels they belong — no matter their background or identity. We work hard to ensure that everyone at JAX feels heard, valued and respected and has an equal opportunity to thrive, grow and contribute to our mission.
