    Biocom California Institute DEI Report

    Biocom California Institute uncovered the state of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) across life science companies in California. In 2020, Biocom Institute conducted a study to analyze the industry’s current DEI landscape and 335 California life science companies participated in the study. The survey findings provide a basic framework for Biocom Institute and the California life science industry to develop an actionable DEI implementation plan.
