  • ERGs
    At Novartis and Sandoz, we support our associates to engage in Employee Resource Groups, which are voluntary networks linking people with a shared set of interests, experiences and perspectives. ERGs make the different aspects of diversity and inclusion more tangible to everyone and connect people with a similar vision, and help us create awareness, understanding and inclusion internally.
