Partnering is a core feature of how Roche delivers impact to the patient communities we serve. We recognize that innovation is taking place all around us but that there are many barriers to optimal patient care, and we welcome opportunities to work together toward the same goal - better outcomes for more patients faster.
As a healthcare company Roche recognizes the important role we play in helping to shape and improve the Canadian healthcare system and in finding solutions that support the full patient journey. With this commitment, Roche wants to partner with patients and caregivers to include your voice in the work that we do.
Diversity & Inclusion
Together we embrace the unique power of each person to transform the lives of patients & society.
At Roche, we aim to create an environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging and where we can thrive equally; no matter what it is that makes us unique — age, beliefs, disability, how we identify, where we are from, or the language we speak. Diversity & Inclusion starts with celebrating our differences and uniting in our commonalities.
We believe that people from different backgrounds will generate ideas that better serve the diverse patient population in Canada and we want our council to reflect that diversity of thought. As a result, we encourage applications from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People Of Color), different ethnicities, persons with disabilities, 2SLGBTQIA+, visible and invisible minorities. If you require accommodation during this process, please contact us at [email protected].
