Lundbeck has always had diversity as part of its DNA. In our history of more than 100 years, a variety of people, products and partners have come together to make progress for the patients we serve. But 2021 demands more from us, so going forward we have set to work on building an even more inclusive organization. We’ve taken a hard look inwards into our data and we know where we need to focus.
We believe that if we build an inclusive organization, diversity will follow.
In simple terms, diversity is the mix. Inclusion is making the mix work. Equity is making sure we are fair and impartial in that process.
To ensure that we reflect the diversity of our patients and their needs, we are focused on
creating the context, culture, and systems where all Lundbeck employees - no matter who and where they are - can be their authentic self and perform at their best. In practice, this means that individuals feel empowered not despite their differences but because of them.
We know that people are sometimes put into boxes - some of these boxes are of our own choosing and some of these boxes are chosen for us. For this reason, Lundbeck is taking a systematic, business-led approach to D&I that looks into and breaks down these boxes. Our bold action on inclusion includes an ambitious two-year plan that enables equality of opportunity through fairness and transparency, promotes openness, tackles bias and discrimination, and fosters belonging through our unique Lundbeck culture. From the highest levels of Lundbeck to the shop floor, we are working to ensure D&I is an integrated practice and mindset.
"We win together. Lundbeck is a place where you grow and thrive – personally and professionally. We embrace the uniqueness of individuals, knowing we are stronger when every brain is in the game." Deborah dunsire, CEO
Today, “to do better business” means empowering all team members by respecting and appreciating what makes us different regardless of age, gender, ability, sexuality, ethnicity,
religion, parental status, management status, work location, etc.
We are constantly looking to evolve our Lundbeck culture. D&I allows us to accommodate differences that expand innovation and strengthen decision-making, which is why we are committed to creating an (even more) inclusive culture, where everybody benefits, and for which we all have a shared responsibility. We are only at the beginning of this journey and we hope you will join us.
