Diversity, equity and inclusion

Our vision

We believe that transforming lives through innovative medical solutions requires a diverse team that reflects the world around us, an inclusive culture where differing perspectives are valued and equitable career opportunities for everyone in our company.

Our approach

We develop programming and drive initiatives that embed inclusivity across our business practices. We seek meaningful culture change by listening to employee feedback to inform our actions and measuring our progress to hold ourselves accountable.

A message from our Chairman and CEO

“It’s important to think about diversity, equity and inclusion as much as innovation or growing the company, and to keep challenging ourselves to push for progress. When we value diverse perspectives, it drives us all to be better and to think differently—and that is how we can solve health care’s toughest problems.”

— Mike Mahoney
