OUR FOCUS

At Medidata, we are committed to creating a better world through clinical trials that provide access for all, STEM education, and gender equality and belonging.

Access for All

Improving Patient Outcomes

At Medidata, we are dedicated to ensuring that patients, especially those who rely on clinical trials, are given access to new drugs and therapies.

STEM

Education Impacting 15,000 students in five years with the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in STEM

One of the greatest ways to ensure new medical findings is to establish a strong education system that empowers young people to enter careers in the life science and technology industries. We want the children of today to have a future tomorrow.

Gender Equality

Creating an inclusive workplace for all

While we’ve made progress—with millions spent annually on diversity and inclusion initiatives—we believe the rate and pace of positive change could and should be better. Medidata is committed to advancing the influence and impact of women in life sciences by achieving full gender equality and parity.

Learn about our Three Pillars of Giving

 

VOLUNTEERISM

Medidata values strong community ties and recognizes the important value that nonprofits and local organizations play in strengthening the social fabric to benefit our neighborhoods, cities, and beyond. All of our volunteer efforts are focused on our three pillars of giving.

We offer our employees with many opportunities throughout the year to volunteer during the workday and participate in charitable runs, increasing our impact across the globe. In 2019, our goal is to have at least 80% of our employees volunteering in their communities worldwide.

We believe that our employees know how to have the greatest impact in their communities which is why we give each employee a free volunteer day to give back at an organization of their choice. 

Matching Gifts

At Medidata, we have a global matching gift program for employees in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, and Korea, with the hope of expanding to other countries in the future.

 

IN KIND DONATIONS

Our donations in kind underline our commitment to advancing life science research, science and technology education and community health.

As active and engaged members in the life science community, we are committed to furthering the industry and regularly provide donations and services to support nonprofits, research institutions, and education facilities in our communities and beyond. Our annual discounts—in the millions—help nonprofits purchase our software, systems, and other products.

We respect the invaluable work of nonprofits, research institutions, and education facilities, and we take steps to further their goals. The work and discoveries of such organizations help advance the entire life science industry and have the potential to touch all of our lives.

SUSTAINABILITY EFFORTS

Medidata is committed to living our values and takes great strides to minimize environmental impact while also taking a proactive approach and supporting green initiatives.

As responsible corporate citizens, we make an effort to preserve and protect the environment. 

By locating our operations in green-friendly spaces, we do our part in reducing our environmental impact while also acting as an environmentally responsible corporate citizen. Our New York City, Iselin, NJ, San Francisco and London offices are LEED Gold Certified, and we accomplished our goal in 2017 to have 90% of our offices under long-term lease LEED Gold Certified. Read more about how our London office received LEED Gold Certification here.

We are actively working on furthering our sustainability efforts and will provide updates throughout the year.

Disaster Relief

As our communities around the world are continually impacted by climate related disasters, we provide support to the Red Cross and their global efforts.
