D&I Vision and Performance

Based on its business philosophy, “Innovation all for the patients,” Chugai works with Roche as it seeks to become a leading innovator in the health care industry, achieving advanced patient-centric, sustainable medical care centered around its own scientific and technological capabilities. This includes positioning the promotion of diversity and inclusion as a priority issue for management.


We believe that a diverse workforce that works together with enthusiasm is essential for employees to generate new value--in other words, diversity is necessary for generating innovation. In addition to its previous focus on gender, nationality and seniors, it is also now placing a focus on individual diversity as it works to put inclusion into practice, with the goal of seeing diversity revitalize the organization and contribute to business success.
