Diversity & inclusion

At Novo Nordisk, Diversity & Inclusion are part of who we are. We are a truly global organization with employees in more than 76 countries, and serve patients in nearly 180 countries. By our very nature, we embrace different perspectives and ways of thinking to help us best serve our patients. We believe that diversity strengthens employee engagement and encourages innovation, which is why we support a work environment where everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in creating business success, and where people are valued for their unique skills, experiences, and perspectives. We offer a number of programs designed to strengthen our diverse and inclusive culture.

Our company is determined to change patients’ lives. That’s no easy task and requires an inclusive approach that is responsive and respectful to our patients and the physicians who serve them. We go the extra mile to ensure that our efforts to educate and support patients are culturally sensitive. At the same time, we have a number of programs in place to educate physicians about the unique needs of diverse patients.

And our Diverse Supplier Initiative helps us identify and engage minority- and women-owned businesses and other targeted suppliers – companies that reflect the diversity of the patients we serve.


Our commitment to giving back to our local community extends across all races, cultures and ethnicities. Supporting a broad spectrum of community programs helps us better understand the communities and patients we serve.

Our long-standing commitment ranges from large-scale relationships with the American Diabetes Association and the National Hemophilia Foundation, to local efforts to educate patients about diabetes. Many of our efforts target minority and underserved communities.
