Diversity & inclusion fuels our purpose. They are key to how we operate, how we engage employees and how we drive competitive advantage.
Our workforce represents the people we serve
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) are not just words — they are the reason we are able to deliver on our purpose: We use the power of leading-edge science to save and improve lives around the world.
But diversity is only half of the story; inclusion is just as important. Inclusion means a sense of belonging. When our employees know they are crucial to our work, not only will they thrive, but our company will, too.
Employee business resource groups (EBRGs)
EBRGs strengthen and diversify global leadership and provide culturally relevant insights that drive our success.
Global diversity & inclusion learning & development programs
We leverage a broad range of learning and development opportunities, such as our Foundations of D&I course and the Diverse Leadership Program.
Global diversity & inclusion ambassador teams
Our global diversity & inclusion ambassador teams integrate our business strategy with our people strategy.
Together, we achieve more when we bring our whole selves to work
