Culture & Community
Our Community Personifies our Culture
While our team of colleagues is essential to our success as a business, it also plays a crucial role in our ability to create a vibrant culture, both in our workplace and in the communities where we live and work.
Colleague Resource Groups
Here at Pfizer, we encourage each other to get involved in one of our more than 75 site-based Colleague Resource Groups (CRGs).
CRGs are groups of colleagues who are part of and/or who support the goals of a diverse population. They offer developmental and networking opportunities, mentoring, and general support to help members enhance their skills and advance their careers. And what’s more, they participate in volunteer and philanthropic activities, utilizing their unique backgrounds and viewpoints to give back to the community outside of work. We are lucky to have numerous CRGs for Asians, Blacks, Latinos, Women, Veterans, the LGBTA community, colleagues with disabilities, and in Europe, varied Diversity Councils.
We at Pfizer believe in the power of mentoring—for both the mentor and the mentee. That’s why we developed the Mentor Match, an online tool that helps facilitate the formation of mentoring relationships.
Whether it’s sponsoring scholarships for students or sponsoring health fairs focused on the unique healthcare concerns of diverse populations, our CRGs are as much about external community building as they are about internal culture building.
And since we believe the world is our community, we sponsor and support many philanthropic initiatives, including our signature Global Health Fellows program, designed to help bring life-saving and health-enhancing medicines and healthcare practices to all corners of the globe. [Subhead – crosslink to Careers page] Professional Networking [Body Copy] Our CRGs support and partner with many external groups such as the Asia Society, Black Ivy Alumni League, and the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association to offer our colleagues networking and educational opportunities within a broader professional population. We also participate with these groups in talent recruitment and volunteer activities.
