At Lundbeck, we are tirelessly dedicated to restoring brain health so every person can be their best. Headquartered in Copenhagen with a U.S. home office in Deerfield, Ill., Lundbeck is the only global biopharmaceutical company focused solely on brain diseases. Our legacy in neuroscience goes back seven decades and we have a long heritage of innovation. Lundbeck has developed and commercialized some of the world’s most widely prescribed therapies for psychiatric and neurological disorders. Today, we remain uncompromisingly committed to improving the quality of life for people impacted by brain disorders. Lundbeck is unique from other biopharmaceutical companies in that we are 70 percent owned by a research-focused foundation. We have a deep and productive pipeline, and we continue to bring forward symptomatic therapies to help people live better lives, while simultaneously pursuing disease-modifying treatments.
Diversity matters, and inclusion creates powerful organizations
To ensure that we reflect the diversity of our patients and their needs, we are focused on creating the context, culture, and systems where all Lundbeck employees - no matter who and where they are - can be their authentic self and perform at their best. In practice, this means that individuals feel empowered not despite their differences but because of them.
We know that people are sometimes put into boxes - some of these boxes are of our own choosing and some of these boxes are chosen for us. For this reason, Lundbeck is taking a systematic, business-led approach to D&I that looks into and breaks down these boxes. Our bold action on inclusion includes an ambitious two-year plan that enables equality of opportunity through fairness and transparency, promotes openness, tackles bias and discrimination, and fosters belonging through our unique Lundbeck culture. From the highest levels of Lundbeck to the shop floor, we are working to ensure D&I is an integrated practice and mindset.
"We win together. Lundbeck is a place where you grow and thrive – personally and professionally. We embrace the uniqueness of individuals, knowing we are stronger when every brain is in the game." Deborah Dunsire, CEO
