Touching 766 million lives in 2021, as a global Pharmaceutical company Novartis sits at the intersection of cutting-edge medical science & innovative digital technology, enabling us to have extraordinary impact on some of the world’s greatest killers – cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and more.
At Novartis we recognize that our people enable all that we do which is why they are a key priority for us.
We invest in personal growth, career development, well-being and diversity and inclusion and are exploring new ways of working to give our colleagues greater flexibility in how they work in a hybrid working environment. Novartis is a place where people grow, careers flourish and leaders are made and as a global company, the resources and opportunities for growth and development are plentiful including global and local cross functional careers, a diverse learning suite of thousands of programs & an in-house marketplace for rotations & project work. D&I is part of our DNA. We’re continually building community and a sense of belonging and believe the strength of our organization is rooted in each of our unique backgrounds, perspectives and experiences.
Novartis colleagues continue to reimagine and reinvent what’s possible in medicine. Because the greatest risk in life, is the risk of never trying.
Working At Novartis
Diversity & Inclusion
We want to build a diverse and inclusive workplace where every one of us can be our best and true selves, so that together we can discover more, reach underserved communities and reimagine medicine.
Belonging. At Novartis we want to ensure an environment where everybody feels like they belong. By celebrating our differences and learning from one another, we can express our thoughts and ideas more freely, which helps fuel the inspiration we need to keep reimagining medicine to help millions of people around the world. That’s why in honor of Pride month, we asked our LGBTQI+ community at Novartis what belonging means to them. These are their stories..
Our LGBT+ Network
As an organization, we actively promote Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer & Intersex (LGBTQI) equity and awareness at work and in our wider society. We want everyone to be free, to be their best and true selves at work without fear of discrimination. That’s why we were the first global pharmaceutical company to support the United Nations Standards of Conduct for Business, tackling discrimination against LGBTI People. We have 20 LGBTQI Employee Resource Groups in 14 countries and recognize that senior champions play a crucial role in setting an example for culture, behaviors and inclusion at Novartis. That is why we have established a senior leadership team who are active allies and advocate for LGBTQI equality globally.
