Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) lives at the heart of Novartis culture and is an integral part of everything we do. It is key to driving innovation and business performance as we push boundaries and reimagine medicine to improve and extend people’s lives.

At Novartis, we embed D&I within our organization, not just because it helps our business to succeed, but also because it’s the right thing to do. We bring our genuine selves – our unique perspectives and imaginations – to work each day, united by our common purpose. As we chart a path toward a more inclusive culture, we strive to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment that treats all associates with dignity and respect and provides everyone with equal opportunities to develop and succeed. D&I is at the core of our cultural aspiration to be inspired, curious, and unbossed, and it drives us to set the standard for inclusive organizations everywhere.
