Embracing diversity and inclusion is at the core of our organization. It is the lens through which we understand and respond to the unique needs of the millions of individuals who depend on our medicines worldwide. For us, embracing diversity means understanding, respecting and valuing differences, including but not limited to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, disability or any other legally protected status. We foster an environment that encourages our exceptional employees to feel comfortable in a culture that supports them being themselves.

We give retired and current military members an opportunity to transition their skills and strengths to important work in the private sector. Members of the military are encouraged to explore our career opportunities and continue the mission of making life better for people around the world.
