Pfizer’s Commitment to Diversity
Pfizer’s strong commitment to building a more inclusive, diverse and innovative culture is key to achieving the corporate mission of becoming the world’s most valued company. Making opportunities available to women- and minority-owned business enterprises and small businesses through Pfizer’s Supplier Diversity Program is an important first step that creates jobs, economic development and a variety of mutual benefits.
As a corporate member of WBENC, Pfizer has participated in numerous WBENC networking events and provided support for many WBENC initiatives. Pfizer has also been active with the National Minority Supplier Development Council, the leading advocacy and certification organization for minority-owned businesses.
