Diversity and Inclusion


Takeda strives to have a workplace as diverse as the patients we serve. We are committed to embracing differences, exploring possibilities and developing our employees. Our success depends on fostering an inclusive environment where all employees are welcomed, empowered and inspired to use their unique voices and talents. This is how we will find innovative approaches to serve our patients, customers and communities. This is how we will reach our highest potential together.

Our team-focused culture incorporates many ideas, perspectives and viewpoints in our determination to put patients at the center of everything we do. Our inclusive programs and policies make Takeda a workplace of choice where talented professionals can grow and flourish.

Takeda Resource Groups

Takeda Resource Groups (TRGs) bring together employees with shared backgrounds and life experiences, as well as supporting allies, to advance business goals and foster an inclusive work environment. Collectively they represent a diverse and global community. TRGs are organizationally aligned and committed to leading initiatives that positively impact our patients, communities, employees and workplace.
