Learn more about our commitments to diversity and inclusion, embedded in our Code of Ethics.
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, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion – and inclusion in everything we do.

ERGs At Novartis and Sandoz, we support our associates to engage in Employee Resource Groups, which are voluntary networks linking people with a shared set of interests, experiences and perspectives. ERGs make the different aspects of diversity and inclusion more tangible to everyone and connect people with a similar vision, and help us create awareness, understanding and inclusion internally. ERGs are employee driven, grass roots communities, which are supported by D&I and Novartis leadership.
