At Novartis, we’re on a journey to build a culture that is inspired, curious and unbossed so that we truly unleash the power of our people to deliver more for patients. Because we know that there’s no such thing as organizational change, only personal change, we want to encourage associates to think differently and share ideas that might inspire action in themselves and those around them...and what better way to do that than through the TED platform? In 2020, we are hosting two independently organized, internal TEDxNovartis events that are now fully virtual due to COVID-19. Our first event series takes place July 13-17, 2020, where we'll have 10 TEDxNovartis speakers who will reach a global Novartis audience.
