Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

“While we are only one company, and in the big picture we play a small role, we know it will take all of us – across companies, communities, and cultures – to come together to make progress toward a more inclusive and equitable world.”– Richard Pops, Alkermes Chief Executive Officer

Gender Pay Equity

As of year-end 2021, median compensation for males and females at Alkermes was substantially equal across metrics of base salary, total cash compensation, and total compensation including equity. Minimizing gender pay disparities has been a priority for Alkermes, and we monitor our pay practices and make focused adjustments to maintain equitable pay across our employee population.

Supporting Diversity in Leadership

Developing a diverse leadership team is an important element of our success and we are proud to support and invest in diversity at all levels of the organization, including in leadership roles. We have made substantial progress in the area of gender diversity in the last four years, with significant gains in the percentages of women in senior roles, including an increase in the percentage of female employees on our management team from 14% in 2017 to 26% at year-end 2021.
