How do you uplift the women in your life, whether that be in your workplace, home, or community? This Japanese proverb is Shalini Nemani's inspiration for choosing to be the best version of herself and empowering others to do the same. She shares: "Last year, I received an invitation to speak to a group of mostly young girls at a school in India. I shared my journey in pursuit of ikigai and the lessons I have learned along the way. I was blown away by the feedback and reception from the students and the school. It was a powerful lesson to me that we need to create more opportunities for ordinary people to share their lessons and empower each other as it can have a huge impact."
We’re honoring Women's History Month by spotlighting women from our Women Empowered to be Exceptional (WE2) resource group as they share their hopes for a more equal future. Today we feature Natasha Bond, who, as a mother with a teenage daughter, is very focused on female empowerment: “I have run programs to expose girls to career opportunities, mentorship, and motivational speakers designed to help girls understand how they can and should participate and self-advocate. I also hope that I am an advocate for early-career professional women at Amgen. It is critical that this next generation bring their expertise and approach to creating a more diverse and therefore more innovative dynamic.” Stay tuned for more spotlights throughout Women’s History Month.
Over the last several years the Environmental, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) department has been joining forces with Amgen's Latin Employee Network (ALEN) to bring the gift of life to patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. This year because of their hard work, Amgen has received the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) Community Partner Award. Since the start of our initial partnership in 2017, they have helped provide Children's Hospital, Los Angeles, with the blood products needed for patients. They have registered a total of 698 donors and were able to collect 567 successful units of blood, which can potentially help save up to 1,701 lives. Congratulations to the Environmental, Health, Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) department and Amgen’s Latin Employee Network!
