In the survey conducted by Forbes with the participation of 50,000 employees, AstraZeneca ranked first among pharmaceutical companies in the “Best Employers for Women” 2022 list.
While pushing the boundaries of science to discover drugs that add value to life, AstraZeneca, which draws attention with its support for the development of society and its employees, was included in Forbes’ “Best Employers for Women” 2022 list and ranked first among pharmaceutical companies. The ranking was determined by results from an independent survey of 50,000 employees from companies with at least 1,000 employees in their US operations.
Making a statement on the subject, Feyza Aysan, HR Director at AstraZeneca Türkiye said, “We are proud to be on this list with our policies that support gender equality and our successful work in internal and external gender equality activities. At AstraZeneca, we have a corporate culture that promotes diversity and inclusion and promotes gender equality. As in all geographies in which we operate in this regard, we continue to progress strongly with the studies we have carried out in Turkey. For example, we can say that 62.5% of our board members and 69.4% of our middle and senior managers in Turkey are women. The fact that we rank first among pharmaceutical companies in this survey conducted by Forbes confirms our commitment to gender equality in the workforce. We are proud of our special training and development programs for women and all the opportunities we offer to accelerate their career and personal development goals. As AstraZeneca, we believe that gender equality in business life begins with equality in social life. In line with this belief, we will continue to work to further promote an inclusive culture and diversity in the workforce.”
