Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

American flag and white letters on dark blue background

As we prepare to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are taking time to reflect on his life and legacy as a man who sowed the seeds of healing in America. Now, more than ever, we can draw inspiration from the example of courage, strength, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership.

This past year at Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. we had the opportunity to gather to listen and share personal stories of racial injustice with the goal of not only raising awareness, but also giving hope that together we can help make the difference  that is long overdue in America. Many of us question what we can do as a company and as individuals and families.  No effort is too small.   This coming Monday is not only a day of remembrance, education or tribute, but also it is a day of service.  We encourage everyone to live in the spirit of Dr. King and to find a way to make a difference in the life of someone.

Also, in the spirit of service and giving back to our communities, we support organizations such as Students2Science and the Zufall Health Center, both of which provide access to underserved populations – access to STEM education and access to healthcare and services. We are fostering partnerships with organizations such as Women of Color in Pharma and we will focus on removing barriers to clinical trials for marginalized people.

As a company, we are committed to empowering our employees and creating an inclusive environment.

 

             “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
                                                                                         Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
