Our Mission

To be an innovative, global partner to our clients across the clinical research ecosystem, enabling the safe, ethical, compliant, and efficient development of life-changing therapies.​

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I)

We believe in fostering a work environment where employees feel comfortable in bringing their whole and authentic selves to work, irrespective of any personal characteristics including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, veteran status, or disability (physical or mental). We value diversity in every form and strive for all Advarra team members to have a voice, experience a sense of belonging, and feel valued and respected.

We are proud to have an employee-led DE&I Committee, with members from across our geographic regions and business areas. The DE&I Committee is focused on supporting internal advocacy efforts designed to enhance cultural competence, promote equity efforts, and create an inclusive culture. DE&I Committee activities have included driving selected initiatives, sponsoring guest speakers, providing educational resources, training, raising awareness, and offering employee engagement and networking opportunities.

In addition, we strongly feel addressing underrepresented populations in clinical trials is a shared responsibility, requiring a multi-pronged effort across the industry. We consistently seek meaningful ways to assist our clients in solving the challenge of increasing participation of underrepresented populations in clinical trials through our products and services. We also regularly partner with thought leaders in the industry to focus on critical issues in DE&I within clinical research, as well as ideate possible solutions.
