It is a workplace driven by integrity, one of Takeda’s long-held values that extends to both the patients we serve and our employees who develop and deliver medicines.

Diversity has been proven to lead to more creativity and innovation.

Diversity has been proven to lead to more creativity and innovation. Companies with diverse leadership teams have been shown to respond more efficiently to a wide range of global challenges. For a research- and innovation-driven global company like Takeda, diversity is critical to our long-term success in delivering better health and a brighter future.

We are accelerating D&I activities in Japan and many other parts of the world, and have introduced several initiatives to enhance gender, work-style, age and career diversity. 

These include: 

• Launching Hanamizuki, a network where women can learn from each other, share knowledge and information, and help each other develop professionally (Japan). 

• Introducing a flexible work-style program that gives employees the choice to select the work times and places that enable them to perform at their best (Japan). 

• Enhancing career diversity by encouraging faster promotion of employees who are demonstrating high performance early in their career (Japan). 

• Hosting the first Takeda U.S. Diversity & Leadership Symposium week in Deerfield, IL. This symposium included employee events, workshops and keynote speakers, and featured D&I leaders within Takeda (United States). 

Diversity is critical to our long-term success in delivering better health and a brighter future.
Takeda continues to expand its commitment to global health by furthering access to care.

Takeda continues to expand its commitment to global health by furthering access to care. With our bold, new Access to Medicines (AtM) strategy, we seek to ensure that eligible patients who are living in countries with less developed healthcare systems, and are prescribed our innovative medicines, can get access to them, even if their ability to pay for the full cost of treatment is limited. 

We are developing innovative and sustainable approaches to tackle the many barriers to care, in oncology/hematology, inflammatory bowel disease, and vaccines, mirroring some of our strategic areas of therapeutic focus. In this way, we can amplify our impact on patients in parts of the world with the highest unmet medical needs. 

We are developing innovative and sustainable approaches to tackle the many barriers to care
