    Bagsværd, Denmark, March 8, 2013 /3BL Media/ - On 1 March, Novo Nordisk celebrated International Women’s Day early with the launch of a new career network – WINN2. The new network stems from the original WINN network (Women in Novo Nordisk) which aims to advance and develop women in management positions to drive business performance. But unlike the original network, WINN2 was created for women at earlier stages of their careers.

    “Women represent half of the world population and half of the employee population of our company,” says Annelise Goldstein, vice president, Diversity and Inclusion, Novo Nordisk. “If we do not have women represented at all levels of the organisation then we are missing out on a huge talent capacity.”

    The WINN2 network is just one of Novo Nordisk’s initiatives supporting progress on the company’s Diversity Aspiration made in 2009. The aspiration calls for all senior management teams be diverse in both gender and nationality by 2014. With
