Pfizer response, May 2020
At Pfizer, we strive for a workplace that reflects the diversity of the patients we serve and the communities we live in. Our commitment to non-discrimination is reflected in Pfizer’s Purpose Blueprint, which recognizes #equity as one of four core values and behaviors that underpin everything we do. We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment and retaliation of any kind. These expectations are outlined in our Equal Opportunity Policy and our Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Prevention Policy. Pfizer’s global Diversity & Inclusion strategy, which is sponsored by our CEO, also guides our activities in this space. Colleagues are encouraged to report concerns about discrimination, harassment or retaliation as soon as they are aware of them, using any of the many channels available for raising concerns, including directly to their manager, or to another manager, Human Resources, Employee Relations, the Compliance Division or the Legal Division. If you have not already done so, please report your concern through one of these channels. By raising concerns, colleagues help ensure that the workplace is respectful and free of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, and give the Company the opportunity to investigate and address potential problems and protect Pfizer, co-workers and the public. Colleagues also have the option to contact the Office of the Ombuds for guidance on addressing work-related issues in an informal, confidential manner. Communications with the Ombuds are “off-the-record” and do not constitute notice or reporting to the Company for any purpose. Applicants for employment who wish to raise concerns may contact any Pfizer manager or Human Resources professional or the Compliance Division.
