Umoja comes from the Swahili word for unity that reinforces its focus on bringing separate components together to create a powerful result, whether that is in the people who make up the company or the platform technologies that make up our therapeutic process. This value guides us each day to meet the challenge of living up to our best selves and staying focused on inclusion.
We are committed to bringing together a diverse set of individuals with their unique skills, backgrounds, and experiences as we work to advance cancer immunotherapy and extend its benefits to every patient bearing the burden of cancer. This is inherent in how we run the company and what we value.
Thoughts From Our Team
“I joined Umoja because of the exciting technology, world class leadership, and a drive to make better, more accessible cancer therapies. The team we have built is truly exceptional and I believe we can accomplish anything we put our minds to.”
I joined Umoja because I wanted to be a part of a community that truly cares about improving patient lives.
I love the idea that our company name means unity. It is one of our company values, and we live it every day. We know that by working together, we can achieve great things.
I come to work every day inspired that we are all committed to our mission of developing therapies that will enable patients to live better, fuller lives without the burden and side effects associated with many current cancer treatments.
I love working for a company that truly values inclusion and acceptance. Each person is appreciated for who they are and the unique skill set and perspective they bring to the table.
Umoja’s mission to provide access to cancer treatments to as many people as possible around the world because of their novel approach is why I come to work every day. Breaking down barriers – no matter where you live in the world – is a critical part of who Umoja is.
