Pfizer: As Diverse as the Patients and Communities We Serve

At Pfizer, our colleagues' diverse backgrounds, values and perspectives contribute to every aspect of our business.

As an organization, we have shifted over time from prioritizing diversity alone to focusing on both diversity and inclusion. Diversity brings new ideas and perspectives into our workplace. Inclusion means being open to those new ideas—even if they are different from what has come before—and encouraging everyone to contribute concepts and solutions.
