In 2020, we rolled out several foundational DE&I initiatives.
UCB’s leaders have been pursuing a comprehensive learning program to help address unconscious bias and promote inclusive teams and leadership. We are also striving to ensure that DE&I is embedded into our talent acquisition strategy and processes. To this end, our International Talent Acquisition teams in the EU, the U.S. and China embarked on an Inclusive Learning Curriculum and we have set a three-year roadmap to define our DE&I approach to talent acquisition. Other key processes, including rewards processes, have been evolved to integrate DE&I specifically as a way to reduce systems inequities. In 2020, this included the development of a consistent methodology to assess pay equity.
