HudsonAlpha’s Statement on Racial Justice and Racial Equity

HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology denounces racism in all forms. We acknowledge racism can be structural, institutional, interpersonal, or internal leading to discrimination, bias, stereotypes, prejudice, and/or physical harm. Racial justice is the systemic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. As an organization, we recognize the importance of advancing racial justice. We believe all people should be able to achieve their full potential in life, regardless of race, ethnicity, or the community in which they live. We strive to advance racial equity through consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals. 

HudsonAlpha was formed on the premise of collaboration, innovation, inclusion, and support. Our mission is to improve human health and well-being which requires we embody those goals not only in our scientific work, but in our day-to-day interaction with our employees, guests, and community. For HudsonAlpha, supporting racial justice entails actively opposing racism, striving to become an inclusive workplace, and exercising equity at all levels within the organization. Improving the human condition starts with each of us. As employees, we are committed to working collectively to practice racial justice and inclusive action toward our fellow colleagues and community.
