Ironwood is a patient-focused, biopharmaceutical company on a mission to push the boundaries of the gastrointestinal (GI) field by advancing the treatment of GI diseases and redefining the standard of care for millions of patients. With our singular focus and a passionate leadership team that has extensive GI experience, we have an intimate understanding of the patient journey, and are making progress towards our mission every day and continue to challenge what has been done before to shape what the future holds. So, we named ourselves after the Ironwood tree, which can live for thousands of years in the harshest desert, creating a shaded microclimate in which life thrives. Iron, like science, is undeniable and strong. Wood, like artistry and humanity, is flexible, resilient and versatile. The two words together represent our passion for making a positive impact on the health – and lives- of GI patients, their families and communities. Equally as important as the work we do, is how we do it. Ironwood promotes a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture in which every Ironwoodian can feel a sense of belonging. We are committed to expanding our talent network and celebrating diverse perspectives, backgrounds and ways of thinking. Having diverse talent and respecting all voices at every level within the company is not just an imperative to the future success of our business or broader society; it is simply the right thing to do.
