Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:
Increasing Female Representation Among Top Leaders
At nearly all levels of our company – including senior managers, directors, and executive directors – our global employee population reflects an equal number of women and men. Among top leadership, our percentage of women continues to increase, with the number of women VPs and above rising in four of the past five years. We are actively working to extend this upward trajectory and accelerate the addition of more women to our executive ranks.
Increasing People of Color Representation in U.S.
U.S. data show People of Color represent 50 percent of U.S. BioMarin employees, from individual contributors to senior managers. We are taking active steps to ensure more People of Color in the U.S. are represented at higher leadership levels, recruit more entry-level Black and LatinX talent, and provide biomedical education opportunities for underrepresented youth.
Maintaining Full Pay Equity in U.S. and Increasing to Fullest Extent Globally
We are an industry leader in pay equity, championing fair and equitable compensation for our employees. Throughout our history, we have conducted consistent and comprehensive reviews of our employee pay practices, and we are proud to maintain full equity in both base pay and total compensation for all U.S. employees. In 2022, we will increase pay equity even more across our company, utilizing all available data to ensure equity in each global region to the fullest extent possible.
BioMarin committed to purchase 100% of our electricity from Marin Clean Energy with over 60% of BioMarin’s electricity for our Novato and San Rafael campuses generated from renewable sources like wind and solar.
BioMarin committed to revitalizing a downtown San Rafael brownfield by completing a $17M remediation of a former PG&E Manufactured Gas Plant site to remove toxic materials. This work not only enables the expansion of our San Rafael campus, but also supports our donation of a portion of the remediated property to nonprofit organizations that will develop an active aging center and affordable senior housing for the community.
