Diversity, Inclusion & Equal Opportunities

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and we believe that diversity and inclusion among our workforce is critical to our success as a global company.

We promote a trusting and appreciative company culture and value colleagues of diverse backgrounds and their abilities to contribute unique viewpoints and perspectives to all aspects of the business, from drug development to marketing.

A diverse workforce offers a more personal understanding of our customers’ needs and concerns. Diverse teams may more likely be collaborative, more accepting of differences, and more apt to embody a balance between prudence and risk-taking. Furthermore, we see diverse teams as more effective in a global environment, supporting our business in discovering, developing, and marketing rare disease drugs to the benefit of the patients.
