Diversity & Inclusion


At Shire, we believe in the power of our collective differences. The benefits we bring to patients and society as a whole stem directly from the diverse experiences, ideas and perspectives of our workforce. For that reason we strive to foster an inclusive working culture that values and respects differences.

Embracing diversity

As an Equal Opportunity employer, we do our utmost to ensure that there is no discrimination against anyone applying for a job or in employment for reasons related to race, gender, religion, national origin, disability or any other personal characteristics. We welcome and value all genders, ages, cultures and backgrounds, to ensure that our work benefits from a broad range of viewpoints and perspectives. Our growing global reach gives us the opportunity to bring to our business an even richer diversity of experiences and capabilities. Beyond our immediate workforce, we also have a Supplier Diversity Program in place in the US.
