To My U.S. Colleagues:

At a time when we’re already facing the challenge of the COVID-19 global pandemic, we’re also struggling with another pandemic, except this one isn’t as new – racism.  I’ve watched the news from the U.S. over the past week, and am heartbroken.  Even though I’m not American, I am still frustrated and saddened by the horrendous injustice against Black Americans.  This is a human issue and we should all feel outrage when systemic racism rears its ugly head. 

Sanofi will never tolerate racism, intolerance and discrimination.  At our core, our purpose and mission is to help all people live their best, healthiest lives.  It is our responsibility to cultivate an inclusive and diverse work environment and to work for a more just and equitable society.  I know we will come together and make a difference.

I urge you to have honest conversations and to work alongside your colleagues to foster a more inclusive environment, to give your time or money to organizations that will help further equality, and to join MOSAIC, our multicultural employee resource group.  

We cannot be silent and stand by.  I stand in solidarity with all of you, and especially with our Black colleagues in the fight against racism.

With my full support, 

Paul Hudson
