Diversity & Inclusion

We want different. We want you.
At Bio-Rad, we believe that great ideas can come from anyone, at any time. And we believe that we are stronger, more innovative, and more successful by developing and promoting diversity within our workplace. Our goal is to create a Bio-Rad where everyone can feel a strong sense of commitment and belonging.

Building a Company for All
Our most important goal continues to be building a stronger organization through a more diverse and inclusive work culture. To this end, we are always looking for different voices and new faces, and our recruitment process is heavily committed to sourcing diverse talent and eliminating biases in the candidacy process. In early 2021, we hired a new Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Frenchelle Franklin, to lead our efforts in this area. Welcome, Frenchelle!


At Bio-Rad, we believe in heroes. Heroes inspire us through their actions, they overcome obstacles that stand in their way, and they make the world a better place. As a global leader in developing state-of-the-art instruments for life science research, clinical diagnostics, and digital biology, we are proud to provide customers with the tools they need to push the boundaries of science, produce high-value diagnostic lab results, and bring life-changing therapies to market. Together, we are helping people everywhere live longer, healthier lives.
