Achieving R&D Strategic Imperatives through Sponsoring and Developing Diverse Talent

In recent years, the construct of equity, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I) within the workplace has risen from conceptually important to competitively vital. In today’s business environment, leaders cannot just espouse such values, they need to embody them. These values must be followed by thoughtful top-level leadership consideration, organizational commitment, and action to unlock the competitive advantages associated with diversity of background, experience, and perspective.

We will explore how Takeda R&D made the transition from commitment to action through their Achieve program, a customized, cohort-based leadership development program designed to accelerate the development of diverse talent within R&D who aspire to senior leadership roles. This program is grounded in the notion that there is strength from diversity -- the range of human differences that are inherent or acquired such as gender, race, religion, mental/physical abilities, LGBTQ+, socio-economic background, and other life-shaping experiences. The participants, aka ‘Achievers’, of this cohort consisted of early-career managers who worked collaboratively with R&D leadership Sponsors to develop critical leadership competencies/skills while moving the needle on key strategic imperatives. Attendees will learn essential design criteria and considerations for building ED&I solutions that combine industry best-practice and organizational context to drive results
