Diversity and inclusion

The key to our long-term success

Perspective changes everything.
Learn about why Novartis Pharmaceuticals prioritizes diversity and inclusion globally in our Diversity & Inclusion Report 2012.

To operate successfully as a global organization, it is essential that our people reflect the rich cultural, ethnic and gender diversity of our markets. As our customer base becomes increasingly diverse, a diverse talent pool of the best qualified candidates becomes a critical bridge between the workplace and the marketplace. Diversity of our workforce enhances customer insight and our ability to meet the needs of patients and other stakeholders. Retaining the most qualified talent adds value to our company, our customers, our employees, our shareholders, our suppliers and the communities in which we live and work.

We consider diversity and inclusion to encompass, but not be limited to:

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Thinking styles
  • Religion and belief
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Differential ability
  • Education
  • Nationality
  • Life experiences

Each of us is different. At Novartis, we aspire to move beyond stereotypes, assumptions and bias to bring these differences together every day, so we can see the world through the eyes of our patients and customers, in our quest to make their lives longer and healthier. Watch the video.
