Dedicated To Diversity, Equity, Inclusion And Respect

Creating a respectful and supportive workplace

We pledge to advance a culture where everyone is valued, recognized, and encouraged to be their authentic selves.

Innovation and ingenuity at Cytokinetics is powered by the varying ideas, cultures, and backgrounds that comprise our team. We champion diversity and inclusivity across all levels of our organization and consider these tenets to be vital to our collective success.

Our DEIR Commitment

We believe that a commitment to a diverse, inclusive, and respectful culture goes beyond what is “right” to do; it is foundational to building a successful, creative, and science driven company. We pledge to increase our awareness of our implicit biases, to listen with respect, and to advance a culture where everyone is valued, recognized and encouraged to be their authentic selves. We pledge to foster learning and curiosity, and to embrace a culture that celebrates the unique perspectives and contributions that each of us brings to our community. Our objective is to be a company that attracts, retains and develops a diverse community of colleagues who are impassioned by our purpose to improve the lives of patients.
