Sanofi's chief diversity, culture and experience officer Raj Verma will lead its new DE&I Board.

Sanofi taps out­siders for new board to check its home­work on di­ver­si­ty, eq­ui­ty and in­clu­sion

Sanofi is look­ing out­side for ad­vice and ac­count­abil­i­ty on its di­ver­si­ty, eq­ui­ty and in­clu­sion ini­tia­tives. Three of the board mem­bers on its new­ly cre­at­ed Sanofi DE&I Board aren’t em­ployed by the com­pa­ny – an un­usu­al move Sanofi says is a phar­ma-in­dus­try first.

John Amaechi, a psy­chol­o­gist, for­mer NBA play­er and best-sell­ing au­thor; Car­o­line Casey, a pi­o­neer for dis­abil­i­ty in­clu­sion and founder of The Valu­able 500; and Ro­hi­ni Anand, a glob­al DEI thought leader and con­sul­tant, will sit on the 11-per­son Sanofi board. CEO Paul Hud­son and R&D chief John Reed are among the six Sanofi ex­ec­u­tive team mem­bers on the new board which is chaired by chief di­ver­si­ty, cul­ture and ex­pe­ri­ence of­fi­cer Raj Ver­ma.
