Paul Hudson on 2019 International Women’s Day


So today is International Women’s Day. Frankly, every day
is International Women’s Day. What’s it about for me and for Novartis? Put simply, it’s about having
the appropriate representation and gender equality and gender equity
at every level of our organization. And what does that mean? Leaders, managers, we should feel
that everybody is represented. How do we get there? Well, it’s not easy
but there are some simple steps. For us, for me, if we make sure
that our panels of candidates are balanced between male and female,
it’s a great start. If we make sure the people
that are assessing the candidates are balanced between male and female,
that’s a great start. And here’s the funny thing:
If you make sure those things are balanced, you end up with a balanced outcome. It’s a great way for us
to get to our objective. By 2023, we hope to have an absolutely
representative leadership population for the rest of our organization. So, what are you going to do?
