We bring creativity, innovation and fresh insights to what we do each day. We collaborate to find solutions that help our clients deliver life-changing therapies.

Business resource groups (BRGs) help us support a diverse workforce and welcoming culture. They encourage cross-functional collaboration, create another avenue to learn and grow in the workplace, and help us increase authenticity. It is through these efforts that we contribute to innovation and make business impact. Driven by employees, we are actively expanding our BRGs offering to foster more spaces for individuals to connect based on shared identities and interests.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At PPD, we respect one another and recognize that our diversity makes our business stronger. We strive to be an inclusive organization where colleagues can be their authentic selves and grow their careers. We encourage open dialogue to broaden our perspectives and fuel business performance. And we work together, united as one, to further positive outcomes for all patients.

The Pride BRG connects LGBT+ employees and allies to create a safe, inclusive and supportive network that brings education, visibility and awareness across communities. Pride hosts numerous educational sessions on topics like transgender awareness, intersectionality and support for LGBT+ youth.

“Prior to the Pride BRG, I was very reserved at work and did not open up to anyone about my personal life. When I joined the Pride BRG, I became more open at work and was able to share my experiences with other members. Through my involvement, I also had the opportunity to develop professionally by taking the role of co-lead for the Pride chapter in Manila, Philippines. In that role, I collaborated with other Pride members to develop projects and events for our chapter.” – Arnelio Lamar, medical writer, based in Manila, Philippines
