  4. Diversity and inclusion

At Sanofi diversity and inclusion are foundational to how we operate and are embedded in our values. We respect the diversity of our people, their backgrounds and experiences. We recognize that to benefit from the wealth that diversity brings, we must lead with inclusion and have a workplace where differences can thrive and be leveraged to empower the lives of patients!

In today’s world, demographic, social, and human challenges affect diversity in the workplace; here are some examples:

  • Gender equality continues to be a challenge with women still under-represented at most senior levels in organizations.
  • Balance and equality in the workplace among people of different gender and sexual orientation is far from being the norm.
  • 80% of disabilities are invisible.
  • By 2020, 35% of the global workforce will be comprised of millenials.
At Sanofi, we see these challenges as opportunities to make genuine improvements. We take constant action to ensure we are a truly diverse organization that engages all in an inclusive culture. This makes Sanofi resilient and adaptable. It inspires us to innovate in the fast-paced healthcare environments we operate in globally.

More that 100,000 collaborators in 100 countries, workforce by gender (46/54%), workforce by region, number of declared employees with disabilities in France : 1 160 salaries in 2016, 1 182 in 2015, workforce by age
