Diversity and Inclusion
Equality, diversity and inclusion are woven into our cultural fabric. Our employees are ethnically diverse, internationally trained and speak 40 different languages!
CCRM’s Equality, Professionalism and Inclusiveness Council (E.P.I.C.) brings our employees together to celebrate diversity and learn from each other. About a quarter of CCRM’s employees are members of E.P.I.C.’s organizing council. They volunteer their time to host cultural events, recognize religious holidays, and organize professional development and educational activities. E.P.I.C. has three main objectives: 1) Celebrate and recognize the great diversity of individuals within our organization; 2) Help all individuals, especially those in underrepresented groups, to grow professionally; and 3) Empower individuals to make a contribution at work and in their communities.
Phacilitate has published an ebook that looks at diversity and inclusion (D&I) activities taking place in selected advanced therapies companies. The ebook not only celebrates the companies leading the way, but also hopes to inspire others to take steps towards creating a more inclusive culture in biotech. Highlights include eight practical ways to foster D&I in the cell and gene therapy field (page 4), and an overview of those activities at CCRM (page 11). View and download Phacilitate’s ebook.
“Having started at CCRM while it was in the midst of rapid expansion, I was able to gain a wide array of experience while working with multidisciplinary teams on an equally diverse set of projects. The people are extremely dedicated, intelligent and welcoming and it has been an absolutely stellar experience as a co-op student from the University of Toronto’s Industrial Engineering program. I have built skills and connections that will last a lifetime.”
“I joined CCRM in 2018 as Operations Manager of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Manufacturing when CCRM’s state-of-the-art GMP-compliant facility was transitioning to an operational phase. Its continued expansion has ensured a seamless technology transfer by reducing manufacturing risks and allowing innovation, scalability, flexibility and customization to produce consistent and reproducible batches. In this time, CCRM has provided me with a unique opportunity to lead the discovery of solutions to potential technical and manufacturing challenges in the reprogramming of pluripotent cells and patient-specific engineered T cell therapy production.”
