Alnylam Is Employee-Driven

“Change the world” kind of people tend to have a lot of good ideas, and a lot of passion for those good ideas. We love that and empower our employees to bring those ideas to life, within both Alnylam and our communities, through Employee Resource Networks (ERNs) or other types of employee-led groups.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are integral to Alnylam, and this group is where we learn about and foster cultural differences.
