Expanding Opportunities to Work and Succeed in Our Industry

At PhRMA, we believe that building a more just and equitable health care system must include a focus on increasing diverse talent to drive real change within the industry.

We’re working to provide better access to the biopharmaceutical industry through scholarships, investments in underserved communities, and by providing support and mentorship to those who need it.

PhRMA’s Talent Community on LinkedIn

Achieving equitable health care requires more inclusive pathways to our industry for a growing workforce. PhRMA’s new Talent Community on LinkedIn aims to help talent find opportunities in the biopharmaceutical industry and foster more inclusive work environments. The community includes our Industry Talent Resume Portal, where applicants can share their resumes with PhRMA member companies and connect about careers across every field.

As part of PhRMA's Equity Initiative, we're excited to offer more events like this in the future.
