Roche is a global pioneer in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics focused on advancing science to improve people's lives. The combined strengths of pharmaceuticals and diagnostics under one roof have made Roche the leader in personalized healthcare – a strategy that aims to fit the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.
Our 125-year legacy of delivering lasting innovation in health care is our most important contribution to society. We strive to make a lasting impact on health systems across the world and we hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality, safety, integrity, and ethics. Our legacy is based on respect for the individual, the communities, and the world in which we live; and we will continue that commitment now and into the future.
Commitment to Diversity
Roche Canada believes diversity of background, thought and experience is key to uncovering new insights and unique approaches to addressing healthcare challenges.
We believe diversity goes beyond our visual identities to include different educational backgrounds, professional knowledge, personality types, age, gender, sexual orientation, thinking styles and life experiences. We believe these differences help create a company culture that is rooted in flexibility, adaptability, creativity and collaboration.
This is critical as we work to discover and develop medicines, diagnostics, and healthcare solutions to improve patient outcomes. We are committed to fostering an environment where scientific discovery can thrive, where the most talented individuals can do their best work, and where we can bring innovative medicines and diagnostics to those who need them most.
Vision for the Future
At Roche, we are proud supporters of all our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) - O.P.E.N. + (Open, Proud, and Equal Network) for LGBTQ2+ employees and allies, Women’s Network, and RoAR (Roche Against Racism) - that celebrate our diversity and ongoing commitment to inclusion and belonging.
We know that we can all do better and it starts with listening, learning and speaking up. Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion is challenging and complex and requires broad societal transformation. The kind of progress we want to see requires commitment and collaboration not just within, but also beyond our walls. That’s why we’re investing and cultivating partnerships across healthcare, education, and within our community.
At Roche, we embrace our people’s visible and invisible differences, be it age, race, gender, sexual orientation, capabilities, or thinking styles. This is critical as we work to discover and develop medicines, diagnostics, and healthcare solutions to improve patient outcomes. We are committed to fostering an environment where scientific discovery can thrive, and that starts with having a team of talented individuals feeling safe in the workplace, knowing they are valued for exactly who they are.
