We are building a culture where diversity and difference are our superpowers!”
Demetrice Tillman

We believe that the strongest teams incorporate and uplift a wide range of voices. To help build a more just, equitable future, we need people from all different backgrounds and experiences, who can challenge each other’s assumptions with fresh perspectives.

Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Philosophy

We want to do our part to dismantle systemic inequality and champion equal opportunity. To that end, we seek to include those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, people who are formerly incarcerated, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.

We’re committed to fair treatment, access, and advancement for all members of the CZI team — from interns to top management. A sense of belonging is important to us, so we actively foster a workplace where everyone is and feels welcomed, respected, supported, and valued.

Employee Resource Groups

Everyone — regardless of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, ability, nationality or perspective — should feel excited to come into work every day. We're proud of our employee-led resource groups, who help advocate for, and create safe and inclusive environments for personal and professional growth for everyone. These groups aim to build community among CZI staff, as well as advance awareness and celebrate cultural diversity within our networks at CZI and beyond.
