Candid Conversations: Amgen Black Employee Network (ABEN)

Amgen kicks off a short video series, Candid Conversations, featuring Amgen leaders addressing topics of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging — issues at the intersection of the workplace and society. In celebration of Black History Month, the first video features transparent dialogue between David Reese, executive vice president, R&D and executive sponsor of the Amgen Black Employee Network (ABEN), and Mike Edmondson, a vice president in our Global Commercial Organization and immediate past global chair of ABEN.

Watch Reese share his “aha moment” and Edmondson chat about his personal experiences with unconscious bias. Both Reese and Edmondson also discuss last year’s death of George Floyd and how its aftermath shaped their views on issues of society, inequity and racial justice.
