Developing and bringing innovative, life-saving medicines to patients requires diverse thought and approaches. Bringing together experts from diverse backgrounds and thought is crucial to our ability to deliver today and into the future.
I am proud of what we’ve done, and there is even more to do to fully achieve the intent and desired outcomes of our Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion vision. Sustaining an inclusive culture is about what we do every day – it’s not an event. This work isn’t always easy. We persevere because what we achieve inspires hope and transforms lives – every single day.
