Based on its business philosophy, “Innovation all for the patients,” Chugai prioritizes the promotion of diversity and inclusion as it seeks to become a top Japanese pharmaceutical company that provides a continuous flow of innovative new medicines in Japan and overseas as a key member of the Roche Group.
Under its new mid-term business plan, IBI 18, which began in 2016, Chugai has established diversity and inclusion as a common, company-wide theme. In addition to its previous focus on gender, nationality and seniors, Chugai is also emphasizing individual diversity as it works to put inclusion into practice, with the goal of seeing diversity revitalize the organization and contribute to business success.
