DIVERSITY, INCLUSION & EQUITY LEADER PROFILE:
RANJITA BANERJEE - PFIZER CANADA
Ranjita was born & raised in Montreal and values her exposure to a myriad of cultures, including her own Indian heritage. In addition to her passion for learning from new cultures, Ranjita’s love for science was evident from an early age. She now holds a PhD in Experimental Medicine in oncology research from McGill. For the past 14 years, Ranjita raised through the ranks of Pfizer Canada where she started as a Fellow in Health Economics & Outcomes Research, until she became the Commercial Director for Promoted Brands in the Hospital Business. This continued appetite for personal growth through the accumulation of diverse experiences is a hunger she tries to instill in her three children every single day.
Although she absolutely loves the challenge of working in her field, she is especially proud of her involvement with the DEI group at Pfizer Canada. Three years ago, Ranjita started a cross-functional group of twenty-five colleagues to lead diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) initiatives. Their DE&I strategy is built upon three pillars and aligned with the following workstreams: culture, colleagues, and external partnerships. The group raises awareness and educates colleagues about DE&I challenges and initiatives. The ultimate goal is to ensure that all colleagues feel seen, heard, free to be their true selves, and experience a sense of belonging. “Our quest to become a more inclusive, equitable and diverse workplace started before the pandemic. Even Pfizer’s role in fighting COVID-19 didn’t slow down our progress; the team and the organization never lost focus on the importance of DE&I to help better meet the needs of the patients and communities we serve.”
