Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Spark, we believe that embedding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) principles into our culture helps cultivate an environment where employees have a sense of belonging and can do their best work.

Spark’s culture is inclusive and DE&I forms the foundation of our values. Employees with different areas of expertise, backgrounds, and life experience help drive our innovation and creativity. Diverse teams almost always reveal new, fresh, and accessible ideas that help us advance science.

We are committed to building a workforce that represents the world we live in, the communities we serve, and those living with genetic conditions. For us, DE&I is not only a strategic priority, it’s also in our DNA.
