At Illumina, we are committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive environment. One of the many ways we celebrate our employees’ unique life experiences, talents, and passions is through employee resource groups (ERGs). During Hispanic Heritage Month, we launched our newest employee resource group, iLatinx. iLatinx will support Latinx-identified employees by creating forums to discuss Latinx cultures and issues, to educate others throughout the organization, and provide leadership development opportunities for Latinx employees.

Employees across the organization are excited about the company and community benefits of the new iLatinx ERG.

“My expectation from this group is that it will generate a positive impact in our local and international communities by bringing awareness of the great benefits Illumina has to offer with its products, and generate interest in our younger generation in Bioscience,“ said Jeannet Valencia, Associate Director Global Supply Chain Analytics.

“The newly created iLatinx ERG is important to Illumina, and our leadership is dedicated to driving impactful opportunities for the community.” – Rosalyn Guido, Manager Digital Experience
