A strategic focus on diversity and inclusion is essential to Sandoz’s long-term success; it is simply good business. Diversity means we have employees who bring a wide variety of experiences, backgrounds, and approaches to our work. It allows us to provide our patients and customers with the most creative and effective solutions, and enables us to attract the best talent. We are committed to embracing diversity – in nationality, race, age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion – and inclusion in everything we do. Our global initiatives include:
