Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Governance and Community DEI is endorsed at the highest level in the company by the CEO and the Executive Committee of Novartis.

Our Global DEI leadership team, led by the Global Head of DEI of Novartis, comprises 11 members representing our business units and focus areas. Together, the team is responsible for driving our DEI strategic priorities, working with business leaders across the company. Further, executive leaders have personal DEI objectives, and are accountable for balanced gender representation in their business areas.

Beyond our formal governance, we have more than 80 dedicated employee resource groups that connect employees with shared experiences or backgrounds, acting as DEI advocates, and supporting our DEI vision every day. This broader community is essential to amplify the reach of our DEI activities and increase the engagement of our people.
