Diversity & Inclusion

A top-down view of a crowd of people

Our differences make us powerful

While our diverse workforce brings different people and perspectives together, inclusion is making the mix work. It is about creating an atmosphere and an environment where each of us feels valued, respected and heard.

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.
