Women at Novartis:
Building a gender-balanced organization with a truly inclusive work culture is one of our strategic priorities.
We are committed to setting the balance in the male female ratio in the work force. We have female leaders in commercial role, which is an example of female empowerment in the pharma industry of the country. A good number of female employees are also working in our manufacturing plant as well as in the field force.
We want to accelerate progress in equality and women empowerment because they are central to our business growth and our social impact. Though we started with a low base of female representation in senior roles due to the historical industry characteristics, over the last few years, we have made significant progress with female representation at senior level.
We want to ensure that the representation of women at the most senior levels in our business keeps increasing.
