Amgen recognizes National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which provides an opportunity to acknowledge the many contributions of people with disabilities and advocates who support them in our workplace. In line with this year’s national theme, “Disability: Part of the Equity Equation,” we appreciate the important role our colleagues play in a diverse and inclusive workforce. This is especially true at Amgen, where we strive to create a welcoming, inclusive and productive environment for all staff and where we recognize that disabilities can range from physical to neurological. It is these differences—and all our differences—that are key to Amgen’s success, and we are committed to celebrating all that makes each employee unique.
