As CEO at Alnylam, Yvonne has advocated for the development of measurable benchmarks to hold the company accountable, leading a cross-functional global team to create an action plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion that after establishing a set of guiding principles to inform their work, it led to Alnylam’s first-ever Corporate Responsibility Report for 2021. Alnylam is committed to supporting women in the office and at home and creating a work environment that allows staff to balance work and family. Alnylam’s Employee Resource Networks (ERNs) enable global networking, education, advocacy on gender diversity, and promotion of equity and inclusion both internally and externally. In 2021, the company initiated The Athena Project, which focuses on enhancing women’s leadership skills at the Director and Senior Director levels.
