What makes AstraZeneca special? Regardless of your role in the organization, your voice will be heard.
At AstraZeneca, you have the freedom to be your authentic self. We welcome every race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, age and size. With your unique experiences and background, you can help us achieve our goals: to ensure equity and diversity in the workplace while creating health equities in all of our communities.
Don’t just take our word for it. Check out our employees’ stories below.
Research shows that women are less likely to apply for a job if they don’t feel they meet 100% of the job requirements. But why limit yourself? You are strong. You are capable. And you deserve to be in the position where you know you’d make a difference.
When you can be your authentic self, you feel your best, and you do your best work. Bring your true you to AstraZeneca – and together we’ll deliver life-changing medicines.
3 ways we’re bringing a fresh perspective to our industry.
#1: Inclusive leadership
AstraZeneca is about valuing, seeking out and leveraging our differences to achieve our company goals. Everyone, regardless of their role, contributes to a psychologically safe environment, demonstrating an open mind, active listening and transparent decision-making.
#2: Fostering an environment where we “Speak Up” and speak our minds
We welcome and suggest alternative ideas. You’ll be empowered to challenge behaviors that are not in line with our values.
#3: A diverse talent pipeline
We’re creating an inclusive workplace and a diverse workforce that reflect our communities and the patients we help with a commitment to racial equity and diversity of thought – incorporating cultural understanding and stimulating an atmosphere where our employees feel that they belong.
We’re proud of our differences.
Different experiences. Different backgrounds. Different strengths. Even different weaknesses.
But that’s what makes our team so creative.
AstraZeneca thrives because your views and perspectives are welcomed and valued. Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to the success of our company, because innovation requires breakthrough ideas that only come from a diverse workforce empowered to challenge conventional thinking.
Equitable access to healthcare for all.
