The Institut Pasteur celebrates the diversity of ideas, visions, and cultures.
The Institut Pasteur is part of the Pasteur Network, bringing together 33 independent institutions worldwide. More than 2,800 people, from all origins and backgrounds, work at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, alongside 20,000 people across the Pasteur Network. We are proud to state that diversity is our greatest asset in our fight for human health. “Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity”, as Louis Pasteur said.
We are all ambassadors of Louis Pasteur’s legacy which recognizes and values all voices, roles, and contributions. The contribution of diversity in biomedical research is key to maintaining excellence in science. We are committed to building a working environment that cultivates and benefits from a wide variety of talents.
With the publication of the Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in 2022, the Institut Pasteur Paris is tackling gender inequalities and imbalances in Research & Innovation by implementing a sustainable transformation of organizational processes, cultures, and structures.
An inclusive approach will be endorsed in addressing inequalities, considering the interactions of gender inequalities with other forms of discrimination based on, for example, ethnicity, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or social background. Each objective is supported by separate actions that are overseen and promoted by a dedicated committee – the Employee Resource Group for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
The Institut Pasteur is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an employer which is fighting against all discriminations. We all have a part to play in diversity.
