Diversity is just as crucial to building a successful business as it is to building a vibrant culture. We listen, learn, and connect with colleagues, our patients, and the communities we live in and serve. At Pfizer, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) means not just attracting the best and brightest talent, but also ensuring that our colleagues can thrive in a trusted environment every single day, all around the world.

Our vision is to be a best-in-class organization that embeds DEI in our workplace and into our purpose of delivering breakthroughs that change patients’ lives. To that end, Pfizer approaches DEI on several fronts.


We want all patients to have equal access to healthcare and accessible, affordable drugs. Within our business, we believe everyone deserves to be seen, heard, and respected for who they are.

That’s why we focus on and invest in making our company an amazing workplace for all. Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion organization partners with business leaders around the world to make sure our approach and processes reflect our key values.

who we are

We want all our colleagues to develop, grow, and succeed. We commit to making that happen, and to sharing and celebrating our successes as we bring together people from all backgrounds, geographies, and perspectives. Empowered to come to work in their authentic selves including but not limited to race, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, veteran/military status, and age, colleagues can contribute fully. Our culture and performance, in turn, become even stronger.


Our opportunity parity strategy represents our commitment to increase diversity.

In 2019, we announced representation goals by 2025 of 47 percent for women (globally) and 32 percent for minorities (U.S.) in Vice President (VP) roles and above.

Results so far:

  • Representation of women at the VP level and above in 2022 was 43.1 percent globally (up 10.1 percent from 2019).
  • Representation of minorities in the U.S. at the VP level and above in 2022 was 28.1 percent (up 8.1 percent from 2019).
Equal Opportunity Report Card

We have publicly disclosed our EEO-1 Reports for 2016 through 2022 in the interest of serving greater transparency and will continue to disclose future EEO-1 Reports as they are filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

The broad job categories by which the data is portrayed are dictated by EEOC requirements and do not necessarily match the job categories by which Pfizer evaluates its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) data. For this reason, meaningful comparisons between EEO-1 Report data and other descriptions of Pfizer’s DEI statistics and disclosures may not be possible.  Additionally, the data captured for the report is a snapshot in time; it does not offer full insight into activities such as acquisitions, divestitures, reorganizations, etc., which may significantly alter the colleague demographics and is not indicative of Pfizer’s diversity efforts. We are fully committed to our DEI efforts and our ongoing initiatives to remain a great place to work for all.

For a further discussion of ”Our People” initiative, including our DEI efforts, please refer to our Environmental, Social and Governance Report.

How We Implement Global Diversity

Our Commitment to Equitable Pay

Pfizer believes in treating all colleagues fairly, a core aspect of our company value of equity. To that end, we are committed to pay equity as a means to ensure that all colleagues are paid fairly and equitably regardless of gender or race. Pfizer works toward pay equity by evaluating pay practices through annual pay equity studies, market benchmarking, and other steps to assess fair and equitable pay, and by complying with all applicable laws and other obligations regarding pay.

An independent compensation expert reviews Pfizer’s equitable pay practices. Here are the results:







At Pfizer, we believe every person deserves to be seen, heard, and cared for.

This is why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is embedded into our Environment, Social, and Governance strategy. We’re focused on building a more inclusive colleague experience, advancing equitable health outcomes, and transforming society through external partnerships. This is a path we choose both mindfully and actively, and it is cultivated by listening, learning, and connecting with our colleagues, patients, and communities.

Pfizer has a long-standing commitment to equal employment opportunity and diversity, equity, and inclusion; we embrace accountability and transparency with our efforts. In 2023, we commissioned a third party to conduct an independent assessment of our DEI strategy and impact on racial equity in the U.S., and to identify opportunities to strengthen our efforts. The assessment methodology included a strategic review as well as interviews with Pfizer leaders, colleagues, and several different external stakeholders.

While we have made positive strides, we remain committed to our efforts and will continue to report on our progress.
