Inclusion & Diversity at Teva
At Teva, everyone belongs, and all opinions are valued. We welcome and embrace individuals of all ethnicities, races, religions, cultures, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, and abilities. When our people are heard, respected, and empowered, they can realize their full potential and apply their skills and talents. This strengthens our organization, fuelling our creativity and innovation as we work to improve health for people of all backgrounds.
Together we're united in building something greater than ourselves – and we do this by treating our people fairly and with respect. But simply telling you we care isn't enough.
Fostering an Inclusive Culture at Teva
We asked Teva people about inclusion and diversity, and this is what they had to say.
Hear from our people what working at Teva means to them in their own words.
What does an inclusive workplace look like?
Our inclusive culture is what binds us. By removing the barriers between our people and their ideas, beliefs, and ability, we can harness the truly diverse insights that underpin our innovative work. It's about being accepted for who you are and feeling you belong.
And, of course, individuality comes from the way people think, too. So as part of our initiative to increase the number of neurodivergent people working for Teva, we're currently piloting a neurodiverse recruitment program focused on Autism. We'll be working closely with a specialist agency that assists in recruiting talented individuals, training employees on autism acceptance in the workplace, and supporting candidates and managers throughout the placement experience.
From how we hire to closing the gender gap, we encourage the spirit of togetherness. Here are some of our stories:

Here, the leaders of our ERG share their personal stories about Inclusion and Diversity at Teva.
Proudly celebrating difference
The diversity of our workforce gives us insight to the many different groups of people that are part of the Teva family. One of which is the LGBTQ+ community, which we support through celebrating Pride all year round with talks, marches, and events. We're always seeking to improve how we do things and looking for ways to be more inclusive. Read about how we've been raising awareness for Pride across the globe through some exciting initiatives.
Teva is Celebrating with Pride
Celebrating and supporting the Teva LGBTQ+ community. We're passionate about caring for our people and empowering our LGBTQ+ colleagues to bring their full selves to the workplace. Our differences set us apart and collectively make us stronger. By removing bias from the workplace, we leverage these differences to co-create, find new ideas and make better decisions.
Nurturing your unique skills
People join us with a range of unique work and life experiences, each offering something. The path might not be obvious at first, but we'll help you get there, offering you the support and guidance you need to thrive and reach your full potential. That's how Woody went from being a professional football player to a Respiratory Sales Specialist for Teva. This is his story.
We believe our desire to influence society and make the world a better place starts with us. We must drive diversity and behave inclusively at Teva, inspiring other organizations to do the same so we can impact society together.
