Sanofi is a global biopharmaceutical company committed to healthcare solutions from prevention to treatment. In the US, our employees focus on human vaccines, rare diseases, multiple sclerosis, oncology, immunology, infectious diseases, diabetes and cardiovascular solutions, consumer healthcare, and more. Every day we dedicate our most important resource, our people, to our purpose – Empowering Life – by supporting patients and families through their health journey.
Sanofi depends on the diversity and talents of its employees to be more innovative, effective and competitive. By maximizing the power of differences in people, perspectives and backgrounds, we create a culture where employees feel engaged, empowered and included.
Our focus this past year has been on three key initiatives:
Sanofi leaders from all of our business units and functions have been engaged in the MARC (Men Advocating Real Change) Leaders Program. Participants engage with a cross-company network to enhance their own leadership effectiveness and discuss ways to effect change in their respective organizations. MARC enables emerging and senior male leaders to develop critical inclusive leadership strategies, sharpen awareness of inequalities, unconscious biases, and privilege, and hone skills to make lasting impact.
Sanofi also became a Gold sponsor of Women of Color in Pharma and its 2nd annual conference. In addition to our sponsorship, we enabled Sanofi women of color to become members of the organization, which includes executive coaching and other benefits to continue to develop and empower them to reach their full potential.
In addition, Sanofi joined Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) Gender Parity Collaborative, which is a consortium of healthcare and life sciences companies dedicated to accelerating gender parity. The Collaborative members commit to taking an active role in defining strategies, measuring performance, creating change and inspiring others. The Gender Parity Collaborative is the first ever in the industry and Sanofi is one of 12 companies that participated in the launch.
