Our Purpose at Pfizer: Breakthroughs that Change Patients' Lives
As one of the world's premier innovative biopharmaceutical companies, Pfizer applies its science and global resources to bring therapies that help people extend and significantly improve their lives. Every day, Pfizer colleagues work across developed and emerging markets to advance wellness, prevention, treatments, and cures that challenge the most feared diseases of our time. For more than 170 years, Pfizer has worked to make a difference for all who rely on us. Every Pfizer colleague contributes to our company values – Courage, Excellence, Equity and Joy. Creating a working environment that is exciting, innovative, inspiring, and safe is one of our greatest motivations. These awards are a testament to living our culture.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
In 2021, Pfizer re-launched a refreshed Global DEI Strategy and Governance Structure to embed DEI into our DNA. To remain a company of choice, we are committed to building a more inclusive colleague culture while fostering an environment for them to thrive and grow, and by paying special attention to the health and wellness of our colleagues
Equity is one of our 4 core values at Pfizer where every person deserves to be seen, heard, and cared for. Our seven enterprise colleague resource groups and over 100 local chapters—OPEN Pfizer Employee Network for LGBTQ+, Global Asian Alliance, Global Black Community, DisAbility, Pfizer Women’s Resource Group, Pfizer Latino Community, and Veterans in Pfizer (VIP)--have contributed to a more diverse and inclusive workplace where our colleagues feel empowered to bring 100% of themselves to work every day.
Pfizer Pride is rooted in everything we do—in our daily work for patients, but it’s also evident in our culture. Pfizer has been recognized for its inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in its inclusive practices as well as its equal opportunity policy. We offer comprehensive coverage of same-sex domestic partners where legally permissible and transgender health care. In fact, we are recognized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” by scoring a 100 percent rating on their Corporate Equality Index every year since 2004. Pfizer is a long-time sponsor of the Out & Equal Workplace Summit, the premier global event focused on LGBTQ+ workplace issues. Our OPEN CRG leads Pfizer’s participation at the Summit, which reinforces the perception of Pfizer as an employer of choice for the LGBTQ+ community, provides leadership development opportunities for colleagues who attend, keeps Pfizer abreast of emerging practices and issues, and keeps Pfizer competitive in LGBTQ+ talent and recruitment and retention.
Pfizer is honoured to share the 16th anniversary edition of our Pride Journal - a platform where our LGBTQ+ Pfizer Colleagues and allies can share personal experiences of struggles, triumph, and their hope for the future in honour of Pride Month.
