The Soaring With Roche Team

Our job as the Soaring with Roche internal team is to help support the building of innovation capabilities, and bring diverse thinking and perspectives to the challenge areas.

We are driven by the people we serve. When you’re a part of Soaring with Roche, we work with you, and for you.

Meet the foundational leaders for Soaring with Roche who are helping to drive forward our collective passion for health equity:

Dvorah Richler

Head of Soaring with Roche

Soaring with Roche brings together people who have great passion, determination and a vision for better health. With members of the community and people dedicated to making a change, we are working collectively to provide better health outcomes for each of us, and for all of us. We share a vision of what the healthiest future can be, and we are driven to achieve it, together.

I’m driven in part by the people in my life who I saw suffer in ways that could have been avoidable. When they went through what they did, I listened, observed and considered what could have been different. We live in a great country, yet the potential for greatness doesn’t extend to everyone who lives here. I am committed to this work because I believe every person in Canada deserves the opportunity for a healthier future.

Michael Duong

Head of Innovation

For me, Soaring is about hope. Together, the impossible is possible! We have placed these massive moonshot goals in front of us and  declared to the world that we are going to work to achieve these goals. But more than that, Soaring with Roche is about community and collaboration – so it further gives us hope that we are going to work together to achieve these goals.

The ‘arms wide open’ invitation is truly for everybody who has something they want to contribute to these goals. What’s in it for everybody is hope and opportunity. If you want to help us achieve these goals, here is the perfect opportunity!

Stay Connected

Effective September 20, 2022, the Soaring with Roche program has been closed. 


At Roche, we believe collaboration is critical to tackling the healthcare challenges of today and tomorrow. But we acknowledge there are times when others may be better positioned to champion or lead the initiatives that we, too, believe in. We also recognize that we need to channel both our human and financial resources to where they will have the greatest impact.

We are grateful for the partnerships we’ve formed through the Soaring with Roche program as well as all we have learned. We carry those learnings forward to other projects and remain inspired by the community’s commitment to better healthcare and to a system that is ready for the innovation of the future. Roche Canada’s commitment to the future of healthcare does not waver – it is being redirected. 


Thank you for your interest. We are eager to continue our work together through other projects and opportunities.
