Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
Balance of employees being male/female is very 50/50. Recruitment and child care seem to be updated too.
I believe GSK is making great steps to be inclusive and diverse. I am aware that there has recently been policy change regarding parental leave. I am also aware that we run many awareness sessions regarding important diversity topics such as gender, aboriginal communities, disability etc. There is still room for growth of course, but GSK is definitely a diverse workplace and continuing to grow in this space.
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
I am not sure how the company 'attracts applicants' but I know that through the internship and graduate researcher programs they advertise to people of different socio-economic backgrounds through universities.
