The transformational work being done at Bristol Myers Squibb can be as rewarding as it is challenging. Our colleagues find that representing their whole, authentic selves in the workplace lets them confidently perform at their highest level on a regular basis. Respect, recognition and dignity allow for the expression of who they are as individuals as well as what they are capable of.

At BMS, our LGBTQ+ community members have found an environment where a diversity of thought, spirit, education, background and culture are not only celebrated but an integral part of growing our business, recruiting top talent and nurturing excellence, making everyone capable of doing some of the most meaningful and interesting work of their careers.

Silka Rodriguez, Senior Manager, Strategic Engagement & Planning, speaks candidly in her video about discovering a welcoming workplace and the difference BMS has made in her life.

“This feeling of belonging was the driving force that made me want to do more in the name of inclusion,” Silka said. “Not only internally for the company, but also outside of Bristol Myers Squibb.”

Listen to Silka’s inspiring story and see how BMS became a home for her to do challenging and groundbreaking work while comfortably being herself.
