As we innovate to improve lives, we focus on care for all. Energized by our values, we take an intentional approach to diversity, equity and inclusion that demonstrates meaningful, measurable progress.
Build. Belong. Advance.
Everything starts with our employees, and the equitable workplace we aspire to build. By putting equity into practice, we help everyone feel that they belong. Done right, we will advance diversity, equity and inclusion, together.
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
From hiring and recruitment to career development and engagement, we’re consistent in our efforts to advance equity. Our programs provide a meaningful employee experience – meeting people where they are.
“Quick fixes rarely lead to sustainable solutions. Through consistent work and dedication, we expect to make progress over time in our journey toward a more inclusive workplace. That’s why we’re starting from the inside out, creating a ripple effect focused on meaningful change.”
— Camille Chang Gilmore
Vice President, Human Resources and Global Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer
Our 2023 goals
We believe setting, measuring and transparently sharing goals and progress around our DE&I work is essential. In 2022, we continued to advance initiatives supporting our 3Up by 2023 aspirations, which drove steady growth in the representation of women and multicultural talent at the supervisor and manager level.
This year, we are developing a future-focused career framework that expands equitable career progression opportunities for everyone at Boston Scientific. This framework will outline clear paths for career progression and inform the measurement of our DE&I goals and progress into the future.
While we finalize this framework, we have set two interim enterprise-wide goals to hold ourselves accountable and support continued transparency of our results.
Our progress to date
Women representation at all levels, globally
The percentage of women1 representation at Boston Scientific increased from 46.5% in 2018 to 49.0% in 2022
Multicultural talent at all levels, U.S/Puerto Rico
The percentage of multicultural talent2 at Boston Scientific increased from 31.7% in 2018 to 36.0% in 2022
“Now more than ever, change requires trust and accountability. Our programs, initiatives and goals reflect the many steps we take to listen, learn and act. This work has no finish line. Working together, we will continuously seek opportunities to improve.”
