Vice President and Head, U.S. Diversity and Inclusion
Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation
Rhonda Crichlow began her career as a tax attorney specializing in corporate litigation. But after helping to negotiate a landmark settlement for Black farmers in a racial-discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, her focus changed to community outreach and diversity. As the chief diversity officer at Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, Crichlow continues to advance the careers of talent from traditionally underserved communities and promote cultural diversity in the workplace.
