What's in our DNA

A collaborative and welcoming community

We are committed to cultivating a respectful culture where people are valued for their unique abilities.

We value the diversity of our teammates and recognize that nurturing individual strengths ignites the innovation needed to pioneer the future of genetic medicine. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) strategy is supported by three pillars: People, Culture and Community. We actively encourage participation in our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to help cultivate and sustain belonging and catalyze transition from DE&I awareness to measurable impact for our team and our community.

Tessera has a special way of making everyone feel that their role is an important piece of the puzzle.
