Our Values

1. Stay close to the work

Whether in education, health, or the criminal justice system - we know the people most affected by the issues should help drive the solutions. Our teams work closely with educators and parents, scientists, and researchers, advocates, and community leaders to ensure the voices of system-impacted communities are heard every step of the way.

“It’s been my experience, personally and professionally, that the people impacted by problems are often best positioned to develop solutions, when equipped with the right resources. Through CZI, I’m humbled to support local leaders and organizations serving the most vulnerable in their communities.”

DARNELL CADETTE

CZI COMMUNITY TEAM

2. Build for the long term

Though near-term wins are critical, it will take a new level of commitment and dedication to make lasting, long-term change. We take the long view and know that breakthroughs can often take decades.

“Science is all about tackling really hard problems. What excites me about CZI is what we’re doing to bring new people and ideas to the table, bringing together scientists, physicians, engineers, and patients into new types of collaborative structures, empowering them to do their most inspired work.”

KATJA BROSE

SCIENCE TEAM

3. Learn fast

Though we focus on building for the long-term, we also move quickly. We roll up our sleeves and put in the work, because we understand the urgency of the challenges our partners take on. We experiment, iterate, reflect — and then try again if need be.

“As a researcher on the education team, I regularly spend time with teachers and school leaders, so I can learn directly from them. Their feedback helps us iterate toward a better product and learning experience for everyone.”

EDUCATION TECH TEAM

4. Be daring and humble

We have big ideas about the future we’re working toward, but they can only be realized by placing the perspectives and experiences of the communities we serve first. Our aim is to help accelerate their work and develop new technologies and tools that will help them reach their goals even faster.

“Confronting systemic issues of inequity inherent in our criminal justice system requires daring. But we don’t know the answers. Progress is only possible, if we invest in those most impacted by the system, to be the agents of change. I’m proud to have the opportunity to serve communities with CZI.”

MARC PRIESTER

JUSTICE & OPPORTUNITY TEAM

5. Collaboration is the tool

Good things happen when people from different backgrounds work together -- across labs, disciplines, and even political divides. We bring together experts, advocates, engineers, and change-makers to collaborate and make sure ideas don’t stay siloed.

“In science, high quality references have long-term benefits. I work on the Human Cell Atlas, a fundamental reference for human cell biology that will help doctors and scientists gain new insights into disease. As a biologist, I’m proud to contribute to a project that will hopefully advance science for years to come.”

Why CZI?

"At CZI, I don’t have to make the choice between optimizing for career growth and working on something I believe in.”

VIVIAN HARE

EDUCATION TEAM

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe that the strongest teams and best thinking are defined by the diversity of voices at the table — including those from historically marginalized groups. We are committed to fair treatment and equal access to opportunity for all CZI team members, and to maintaining a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, respected, supported, and valued.

Benefits for the Whole You

We’re thankful to have an incredible team behind our work. To honor their commitment, we offer a wide range of benefits to support the people who make possible all that we do. We want every employee to feel supported as a “whole person” by CZI, so they can: take care of themselves and their loved ones, live a life of service and grow their career.
