We believe embracing diversity means understanding, respecting and valuing differences. At Lilly, our commitment to diversity spans our workplace, marketplace and our relationship with suppliers. Lilly is an equal-opportunity employer. We recruit, hire, train and promote people in all positions without regard to race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability. At Lilly South Africa more than 70% of the employees are female and over 50% are from previously disadvantaged communities. Several South African managers have been given the opportunity to prove, and improve, their skills at Lilly offices around the globe where they are respected for their skills, professionalism and integrity.
