Pfizer funds the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Planned Parenthood and endorses the Equality Act. Pfizer's leadership has been outspoken on topics such as transgender activism.

Pfizer has not publicly terminated business relationships due to religious beliefs or political views. The company received a score of 100 on the Corporate Equality Index from the HRC. Among other requirements, this means Pfizer has pledged to vet vendors based on LGBTQ policies. Pfizer has also added “opportunity parity goals” for 2025.
