Diversity & Inclusion at Novartis (3:33)

It is our differences that make us powerful.

They enable us to approach things differently. They enable us to be innovative. They enable us to deepen our understanding of our patients and customers. With diversity and inclusion embedded in everything that we say and do, we can help discover and develop breakthrough medicines.

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 and life experiences.

We live Diversity & Inclusion

We work to bring our vision of re-imagining medicine to life through valuing the diversity of  people, nurturing an inclusive environment and shaping positive social change.

One of our key priorities is to achieve balanced gender representation in management by 2023
