Community Building

The Pfizer Corporate Affairs Multicultural Center of Excellence: Over the past decade, Pfizer has worked in the burgeoning multicultural communities of the US to increase awareness of the company’s patient assistance initiatives and help individuals and families who are uninsured or underinsured get access to Pfizer medicines. The coordination and collaborative efforts with Pfizer’s National Government Relations and Multicultural Affairs office led to the development of the Pfizer Corporate Affairs Multicultural Center of Excellence (MCoE), a centralized resource at Pfizer established in 2015, for external partners and Pfizer colleagues within the US to engage in multicultural community efforts. The MCoE aims to raise the level of multicultural competency and engagement at Pfizer. By reaching out to diverse communities, the MCoE seeks to build strong partnerships with representative organizations, and drives Pfizer to connect and collaborate with these organizations. One objective of the MCoE is to help reduce and eliminate health disparities in the US among diverse patient populations. The MCoE seeks to partner with organizations that help address the following common goals: 1. Diversity in Clinical Trials 2. Health Care Reform 3. Disease Awareness 4. Access to Health Care and Medicines. Pfizer's Multicultural Advisory Council (PMAC), created simultaneously with the MCoE, creates a platform for an ongoing exchange of ideas and helps guide the company toward enhancing its work and engagement with multicultural organizations throughout the US and the common goal of creating health equity for all.

Pfizer employees also engage with multicultural communities at various levels. Whether it's sponsoring scholarships for students, or sponsoring health fairs focused on the unique healthcare concerns of diverse populations, Pfizer's Colleague Resource Groups are as much about external community-building as they are about internal culture-building. And at Pfizer, the world is our community: we sponsor and support many philanthropic initiatives, such as our signature Global Health Fellows program, that gives Pfizer employees the opportunity to work with international development organizations to bring about meaningful and systematic improvements in health service delivery for people in greatest need in all corners of the globe.
