UCB Statement on Racism and Racial Injustice

Over the last several weeks, UCB has shared deep concern and sadness about the state of racial injustice and heinous acts of violence against Black Americans happening in our country. We remain committed to living our Patient Value Principles to respect all people and to embrace diversity of thought, experience, and background. At UCB, we do not tolerate racism and racial injustice in any form.

But that is not enough. These ambitions and actions must extend beyond our UCB colleagues and into our communities and across all stakeholders. We must do everything possible to drive sustainable change in our communities, to be agents of positive change.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I) has never been more important. Within our organization, we are committed to actively listening and seeking to understand, so that everyone at UCB feels valued and safe. To date, we have taken several immediate steps, including increasing the presence and leadership of the UCB D&I Council; launching a new employee resource group, ‘Black Employee Interconnecting Network Group’ (BEING); and encouraging employees to utilize available mental health support resources through our Employee Assistance Program.

In addition, to enhance the D&I cultural journey at UCB in the U.S., we are looking internally and externally for a talented individual to fill the position of Diversity and Inclusion Lead.

This is not the end, this is only the beginning. We are committed to continuing to change for the betterment of UCB, the incredible people who work here, and society. Read more from our CEO, Jean-Christophe Tellier, on UCB’s intolerance of racism and racial injustice in any form.
