Our Commitment to Human Diversity and Inclusion

At Harpoon, we embrace diversity and seek to create a culture of inclusivity that encourages individuals to be their whole selves and feel involved, respected and connected. We are better because of each other’s unique ideas, approaches and contributions. We accept our differences so that we can learn from one another, improve together, and ultimately achieve greater impact.  We envision that this philosophy applies to how we work together with in the company, how we work with others outside our company, how we represent our company in our communities, and how we ensure our scientific innovations serve a diverse patient population.

Diversity is both visible and invisible, and can include (but is not limited to) background, culture, language, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, race, age, disability, sexual orientation, education (both formal and non-traditional), religion, work experience, family status, capabilities, veteran status, geographic or regional identification, personalities, and socio-economic background.  We humbly recognize that diversity and inclusion are not finite goals for they will require an ongoing commitment to acknowledge, incorporate, and sustain to be effective.  

We are undertaking various activities to apply this philosophy to impact the following:

  • Hiring and development of employees
  • Awareness and education of our workforce
  • Ways we work with others (contractors, patients, et al.)
  • Where we live in our local communities.
