Diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) at Benchling

We’re committed to building an equitable workplace where employees can feel respected, connected, and supported in their growth.

Our approach

"The work of building a culture where everyone can truly belong doesn’t just happen. It takes intentionality, resources, thoughtfulness, accountability, and commitment from every Benchling. I’m proud to be part of a company that celebrates this."

Where we are now

Our Employee Resources Groups (ERGs) play a significant role in creating a sense of belonging and community here at Benchling. Our ERGs are made up of Benchlings and their allies, led by compensated ERG leaders.


A space by queer Benchlings for queer Benchlings and their allies to enrich our community and make Benchling the model for a queer-inclusive workplace.


A community for Black, Indigenous, and people of color and allies to support each other through dialogue, celebrations, and awareness.


A safe space for Benchlings to speak about mental health and find support and connect on mental inclusivity and neurodiversity.


A community for all women-identifying and women-aligned Benchlings and allies to provide support, connection, mentorship, collaboration, and discussion.


A community for current, expecting, and hopeful parents, and all those who are navigating careers while being caregivers.


Our mission is to facilitate improvements in Benchlings’ day-to-day actions and empower our community to have a positive, measurable impact on climate change.
