Dedicated to Diversity and Inclusion


Multiculturalism and inclusion are important concepts here at K2. We understand the significance of representation of all populations in clinical research and are aware of the current lack of diversity in trial participants. We endeavor to change this. We reject a set-it and forget-it mentality when it comes to equity and justice; instead, we aim to use these ideas as living, working concepts that inform our daily interactions with one another, with patients and with the community at large. Find out more about what we are doing to promote diversity in our clinical trials.
