Affinity Groups at Ginkgo

Affinity is the tendency of a chemical species such as an atom or molecule to react with another to form a chemical compound. At Ginkgo, we realize that folks will find common ground around the identities and experiences that each team member brings to the table. We want to provide spaces for our team to elevate and provide a collective voice around shared issues or concerns.
