focuses on three areas:
We apply our long-term approach to inspiring and developing the next generation of scientific innovators. We believe that scientists are heroes and hold the potential to solve our greatest challenges, and that has never been more evident than in our own development of a treatment for COVID-19. In order to continue building that pipeline of talent, Regeneron seeks to foster the next generation of scientific innovators by collaborating with the best STEM education partners on local, national and international levels. More than 90 percent of our corporate philanthropic investments supported STEM education outreach and equity initiatives and research competitions, like Regeneron Science Talent Search and Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair. In 2021, we adapted our programs to meet the needs of students, teachers and parents by providing virtual learning opportunities and competitions, reaching budding science enthusiasts in new ways.
These 5 pillars represent the values and behaviors that define who we are, what we stand for and how we work together.

At Regeneron, we are deeply committed to ensuring all people are included and diversity is celebrated. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is not just the right thing to do, it’s at the heart of our ability to innovate and bring important new medicines to patients who need them. We continue to strive to improve our DEI efforts through the lens of our DEI strategic framework:
Across the Regeneron team, we continue mandate leadership training and more development and mentoring opportunities for underrepresented groups. We support employee-led cross-functional groups who connect around a common passion to build a culture of inclusion, collaborate to support under-served science and global communities and provide inclusive professional development and leadership opportunities. Our ERGs provide professional development opportunities with leadership roles and support from members of Senior Leadership as well as their Executive Sponsors. We also provide other opportunities for colleagues to get involved, including participating in Empathy Circles to be an ally or discussions on important DEI topics during Inclusion Café.
Beyond the Regeneron walls, we support equity programs to enable more students to access inspiring STEM education opportunities, such as through our STEM Action Grants and advocate program with the Society for Science, as well as our work with local organizations such as the Yonkers Partners in Education after-school research program.
