Solidarity: Putting Commitment into Action
As communities in the US continue to be impacted by racial injustices, we stand in solidarity with all people working for equity and racial justice. There is much work to be done to help the communities where we live and work address important issues, and Astellas is dedicated to supporting these efforts by turning our commitment into increased action. We commit to donate more than $150,000 to non-profit organizations in support of helping communities impacted by recent events. We also are working on sharing new opportunities for volunteerism and creating a YouGiveGoods campaign to allow for employee matching gifts that assist our employees in demonstrating their personal support.
For those employees experiencing trauma resulting from recent events, we’ve identified multiple internal and external resources focused on well-being. Additionally, all of our US-based personnel are invited to participate in several upcoming open forums intended to encourage constructive discourse on race and other issues.
