What employees around the world have to say on allyship, inclusivity and LGBTQ+ support at Teva.

Josh Cohen (He/Him/His)

Sr. Director, Therapeutic Area Lead Migraine & Headache Global Medical Affairs

I value working at a company that prioritizes inclusivity and diversity, putting it at the center of everything we do.  Serving as Co-Chair of the Pride ERG for the past 3 years, I had had the great privilege of helping our organization grow and evolve on its dedicated journey in championing LGBTQ+ equality and inclusivity.  I am proud of Teva and its leadership which deeply impact the lives of our LGBTQ+ colleagues.

Smadar Tabenkin Ezer (She/Her/Hers)

Global Social Media Lead and Digital Content (IL)

As a parent, I feel that I’m more than an ally. I can’t sit still. I have a responsibility to listen, educate and advocate for change, so that my kid feels seen, accepted and loved just the way they are.

Carlos Lopez (He/Him/His)

Senior Manager, Analytics US Anda, Inc

I am delighted to see Teva’s tangible efforts towards LGBTQ+ inclusion not only during Pride month but throughout the year. At a personal level, I feel welcomed and proud to work here, knowing that I can bring my entire self to work every day.

Janine Ting Jansen (She/Her/Hers)

Sr. Director of Inclusion & Diversity, NA

As an Ally I will seek to actively engage others on the topic of pronouns.  Increasing awareness will contribute to a culture change of greater inclusion.

John Kim (He/Him/His)

Director Biologics CMC, US

I learned from two of my adult children how to more fully accept and love all people on the spectrum of life, and I learned from Teva’s PRIDE ERG how to translate those feelings into meaningful advocacy and action. What I realized many years too late was that you do not need to wait for a personal reason to support your ERGs and make a difference.

Beth Barrett (She/Her/Hers)

Manager, Benefits, US

As an ally I try to understand what others may be feeling, listen to what they are saying and ask questions.  Pride month is the perfect time to ask why pronouns are important and learn how using someone’s preferred pronoun can make them feel included and valued.

Kim Innes (She/Her/Hers)

General Manager of Teva UK & Ireland

Pride month is an opportunity to celebrate and champion inclusiveness and diversity. But it’s also a chance to reflect on where we can do better, and remind ourselves that there’s still work to do. As a leader I’m committed to doing everything I can to make sure that no matter who you are, you will always feel you can be your True Self at Teva.
