Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Fuel Us

Everyone should be empowered to be their authentic selves at work. We’re fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture where employees can advance their careers and collaborate to improve and save patients’ lives.






Message from our Chairman & CEO

“It’s important employees think about diversity, equity and inclusion as much as innovation or growing the company. A culture that values diverse perspectives drives us all to be better and think differently—and that’s how we can solve health care’s toughest problems.”

Michael F. Mahoney, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Embedding Inclusive Behaviors
Everyone can contribute to the betterment of our workplace and communities. That’s why we require all employees to complete unconscious bias training, along with setting their own inclusion and engagement goals.

Developing Leaders as Inclusion Champions
Our leaders play an important role in coaching and creating a safe and equitable workplace for their teams. All our leaders must complete diversity, equity and inclusion training to raise awareness about important issues and challenges to better support our evolving global workforce. And as part of our evaluation process when hiring or promoting senior leaders, we consider how candidates have demonstrated inclusive behaviors.

Who leaves matters just as much as who enters. By supporting, engaging and retaining diverse talent, we can stem attrition to maintain our culture of diversity.
