Takeda’s Black STEM leaders share their stories and pathways of promise

While the tides are slowly turning, Black professionals remain underrepresented in STEM careers. This gap is more than a statistic; it's a barrier to full potential for the children who hold the keys to future innovation and for the communities that would benefit from their brilliance.

"I hope young Black and Brown students truly feel like they're the right person."
