Like Olympians and Paralympians, we spend every day challenging ourselves and each other to be better, go further, and to never, ever settle as we chase the miracles of science to improve people’s lives.
The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games aren't just about sport. They're about courage, resilience, teamwork and making an impact in the world.
Leveraging sport and the momentum from the Paris 2024 Games, we have the ability to make science more inclusive, available and meaningful to all, building a true legacy in line with our purpose. This starts by building a bold, open and inclusive workplace where everyone can ignite their potential.
Igniting the Potential in Everyone
Science and sport aren’t that different. Just like athletes do, we overcome setbacks to keep moving forward, not just for ourselves, but for our patients, colleagues, families and friends.
Highlights: World Para-athletics Championships Paris 2023
We attended the World Para-athletics Championships in Paris and cheered for Team Sanofi athletes, Nantenin Keita and Ezra Frech.
Mixing world-record athletes’ performance and accessibility initiatives, the event perfectly reflected the spirit of what we try to achieve on our journey to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024: tapping into the power and values of sport to ignite the potential in everyone.
Going for the Gold: Ezra’s Visit to Vitry-sur-Seine
Be it breaking a world record or making a breakthrough drug discovery, athletes and scientists push their limits to achieve extraordinary results. Ezra Frech’s visit to our site in Vitry-sur-Seine shows us just how close the worlds of science and sport are: despite challenges, we never settle and always go for the gold.
Through our partnership with Paris 2024, we are creating opportunities to engage our 91,000 employees worldwide, including 20,000 in France, and to promote diversity and inclusion in a unique way inside and outside Sanofi.
The Meningitis Flag
