The Board of Directors and management at La Jolla Institute for Immunology is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Our employees are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and the Institute’s achievement.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in ancestry, age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender, gender identity or expression, genetic information, language, medical condition, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion or creed, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, military or veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
La Jolla Institute’s commitment to diversity and inclusion applies—but is not limited—to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of equity that encourages and enforces:
- Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees.
- Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
- Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.
- Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.
- Training and outreach efforts to enhance diversity, free from bias and discrimination.
All employees of La Jolla Institute have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work and at work functions, on or off the work site. Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of treatment that conflicts with the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness should seek assistance from Human Resources.
