class="heading">About Astellas African American Employee Impact Group (AAEIG)

Astellas’ African American Employee Impact Group is one of seven special impact groups that support our mission of building and leveraging a diverse workplace to optimize patient and community insights that turn innovative science into value for patients.

All EIG programs, including those from the AAEIG, engage employees through four pillars – Career, Culture, Commerce and Community:


Attract, retain and develop underrepresented talent in and outside of the EIG


Be the subject matter expert on identity’s culture and drive cross-cultural competency and accountability


Provide subject matter expertise to drive the business impact


Invest in our communities through corporate social responsibility, health equity and supplier diversity

The four pillars or the 4 Cs help the AAEIG and other impact groups ensure the right conditions are in place for each employee to achieve his or her full potential and to create a trust-based environment where everyone feels safe and connected.

Since its inception, the AAEIG has spearheaded, sponsored or participated in a number of noteworthy programs promoting diversity, engagement and inclusivity in the workplace, including most recently:

Juneteeth Campaign

In June 2021, AAEIG hosted a series of educational opportunities for employees to learn more about Emancipation Day, the annual celebration marking the effective end of slavery in the U.S.

We Are ONE Forum

In August 2020, our AAEIG hosted the We Are One: Building Solidarity with Black Employees and Beyond Forum to focus on race-based incidents of harassment against the Black community and ways employees can show support. Over 1400 employees participated in the inaugural event.

Congressional Black Caucus (CBC)

In Fall 2019, members of the AAEIG attended the Congressional Black Caucus, a leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans with a mission to advance the global black community by developing leaders, informing policy and educating the public.

Black History Month

In February each year, the AAEIG hosts a month-long education series focused on raising awareness of the African American culture, customs, history and heritage, as well as the extensive impact African Americans have had on our society.

All employees are invited to join and participate in AAEIG activities and events. We promote Astellas’ culture of inclusion where colleagues can bring their authentic selves to work.
