Inclusion shows up in our purpose, our work, and our practices. It is foundational to why we exist—expanding the impact of genomics to all people. Diverse perspectives are valued and needed to drive discovery and innovation. And our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) commitment is demonstrated through our words, decisions, and actions.
We are addressing DEI in our workplace, with our suppliers and business partners, and in our communities. As we embed DEI in all we do, our DEI strategy is integrated internally with our employees and our culture, and externally with our suppliers, business partners, and our community.

Gender representation in leadership2
Our pay practices are designed to compensate employees based on factors such as job performance, expertise, and experience relevant to individual geography. We believe no one should be paid differently due to their gender, race, age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or national origin. For this reason, we monitor our pay equity status and market competitiveness on an annual basis to ensure we offer equal pay.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) deepen our respectful, inclusive culture by engaging employees around the issues they care about. They help employees develop connections with their peers and allies, and collectively advocate for diversity initiatives. Our growing ERGs also deliver expanded career and development experiences. We are proud to have ERGs represented globally supporting young professionals, LGTBQ+, veterans, people of color / minorities, and women.
Our four contribution pillars ensure programming both supports ERG member needs and aligns with Illumina’s values. This focused work educates our teams about the value of difference and uses the power of diversity to drive innovative problem solving for our business.
