Adrienne Gonzalez

Adrienne has spent most of her career as an attorney shaping an environment so patients have less barriers to access and companies have the opportunity to bring innovations to market. At the same time, she brought this same passion to her role as the first lead of the BMS Black Organization for Leadership & Development (or “BOLD”). Adrienne planned and executed initiatives to improve recruiting and retention of African-American talent, external corporate reputation and business outcomes for African-American patients. During her tenure, she increased BOLD membership by 200%, drove focus toward clinical trial diversity, expanded the BOLD Day of Service on MLK Day, established a five-year post-graduate biomedical fellowship program with the United Negro College Fund, and educated Congress and the CBCF on BOLD’s work.
