Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are core business elements of our commitment to improving the health of people around the world. We place a high value on leaders and colleagues exhibiting inclusive behaviors and respect for individuals, communities and cultures. We also see diversity and inclusion as a way to leverage the unique traits and abilities of our workforce, and better connect with patients, consumers, customers and suppliers in order to succeed in the marketplace.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy focuses on the promotion of global talent to enhance our ability to compete in the marketplace.

Diversity is not only a business leader imperative, it is supported by key stakeholder groups across the company. These include the Diversity & Inclusion Executive Council, various Colleague Resource Groups, global, regional and divisional Diversity Councils, and Ambassadors. These groups have an active role in demonstrating the business case for diversity and serve as a leadership development tool for diverse talent.
