Business Purpose

Diversity is just as crucial to building a successful business as it is to building a vibrant culture.

At Pfizer, colleagues of diverse backgrounds and abilities contribute unique viewpoints and perspectives to all aspects of the business, from drug development to marketing. Diverse colleagues offer a more personal understanding of our customers’ needs and concerns. Diverse teams are more collaborative, more accepting of difference and more apt to embody balance between prudence and risk-taking. Diverse teams are also more effective in a global environment, helping make Pfizer the world leader in discovering, developing and marketing innovative medicines to improve health and save lives.

“Diversity and inclusion are imperative to our business success as a global company. We must put our words into action by exhibiting inclusive behaviors and demonstrating respect for the individual in everything that we do.”

Freda Lewis-Hall, Chief Medical Officer and Chair, Diversity Worldwide Leadership Council
