At Covance, we understand, respect and value differences. We know that embracing the skills, cultures, ideas and experiences of every employee around the world gives us a clear competitive advantage. Our diverse perspectives make us a more insightful partner and reveal new opportunities for our clients.

Our Employee Resource Groups range from advocates and allies for women, parents and veterans to our GLO (Gay, Lesbian, Other) group; and from our GoGreen Committee to our Diversity Awareness Committee(s). Many members partner with local volunteer organizations too, building awareness and strengthening our bond with our communities.

Our groups are united in purpose to:

  • Create networking opportunities for employees with a common interest or culture.
  • Strengthen our commitment to an inclusive working environment.
  • Attract, develop, grow and retain proactive, insightful talent.
  • Increase awareness of and respect for diversity and inclusion.
  • Generate learning opportunities.
  • Serve as ambassadors who deliver on Covance’s mission.

 

We share your respect for the environment and are committed to integrity, diversity, inclusion and philanthropy.

They’re not just good business practices. They make a difference and they’re the right things to do. We bring these core values to life in our business practices, in our relationships with our clients and strategic partners, and in our community. We believe helping improve people’s lives is our responsibility as well as our business, and we are committed to it.


We recruit top talent from universities around the world. Technical excellence in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) discipline is vital. But so are thought leadership, integrity, critical thinking, global perspective and creativity. If you’re keen to grow in a fast-paced, client-focused environment, find out how we prepare you for great things ahead.
