Diversity Mission: Whether you are an employee, patient, health care provider, supplier, managed care organization, or member of one of the many communities where we do business, you are impacted by our approach to diversity and inclusion. At Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC), we are committed to building a workplace that actively seeks out and values different perspectives, where all constituents feel that they are respected and that they are contributing to the business. Enhanced business relationships, greater innovation, the ability to attract and retain top talent, and increased productivity, profitability, and customer satisfaction are among the benefits of the diverse and inclusive culture we are building at NPC.

Novartis Pharmaceuticals has voluntary employee resource groups (ERGs), which are groups of employees with a shared set of interests and experiences. These groups feature networking opportunities and mentoring activities. ERGs also give employees the chance to share their views, develop business solutions, and continue professional growth and development. The ERGs include Women in Leadership; Empowering Women to Impact Now; Working Parents Connection; and Caregivers Alliance for Resources, Education and Service.
