Pfizer’s Disability Philosophy
As a premier pharmaceutical company, Pfizer benefits from a uniquely diverse workforce which includes strong disability and neurodiversity representation. Our mission has always been to draw from the best available talent pools, and we recognize the community of disabled and neurodiverse candidates as an invaluable source of this highly sought-after talent. Join us on our journey to build a more inclusive workforce.
Equity is a core value at Pfizer, and we have been consistently recognized by Disability:IN as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.”
In addition to meeting ADA standards in supplying reasonable accommodations, Pfizer fosters an environment that gives you both the resources you need to be successful in work and the support from colleagues that allows you to feel confident within a social community. Our culture of inclusion will encourage you to see the unique value of your perspectives as well as the perspectives of others, thus allowing you to realize your greatest potential as a professional.
In keeping with our mission to cultivate diversity, Pfizer prioritizes workplace practices that elevate the confidence and productivity of our neurodiverse and disabled coworkers – taking their skills, not weaknesses, into greatest consideration. Our colleagues find Pfizer to be a welcoming and accommodating environment, allowing them to thrive and build new skills with the help of support networks, colleague resource groups, and more.
Accommodations & Assistive Technology
Colleagues at Pfizer have access to a variety of reasonable accommodations that we proudly keep up to date with ADA and professional standards. They are managed carefully to ensure that individual needs are met, and comfort is assured in the workplace. We have additionally integrated our systems with advanced assistive technology. These programs and tools enable greater accessibility to the websites, applications, and devices we support on a day-to-day basis.
Examples of Assistive Technology we offer:
- Display: Color filters, Immersive Reader.
- Voice Recognition: Dictate.
- Applications: Read Aloud, MS Editor, Dragon Dictation, Microsoft 365 Suite
Additional information can be found in the Accommodations section.
Disability inclusion can only happen if the disability community has a seat at the table. The Disability Colleague Resource Group has been instrumental in driving and evolving the company’s disability inclusion strategy. I am proud of their efforts to give the disability community a voice and create an environment where everyone is supported and thrives.
