Inclusive Employee Resource Groups
Our global employee resource groups are at the heart of our culture of diversity, collaborating across the business at all levels to promote awareness in a wide range of areas. What’s more, when people join and contribute to these groups, they’ll take on valuable new experiences and opportunities to handle new responsibilities.

Global Council for Inclusion
Our leaders are important role models for driving change. The Boston Scientific Global Council for Inclusion is chaired by our chief financial officer and its membership includes our chairman and CEO, the entire Executive Committee, global D&I team and all global Employee Resource Group (ERG) leaders. The council meets quarterly to assess diversity and inclusion progress and, importantly, engage in candid conversations on issues that our employee groups may be facing. Several executives also serve as global ERG sponsors.
Creating Connections & Conversation
"The Global Council for Inclusion has proven to be a valuable bridge for open dialogue to identify solutions that have the greatest impact on creating an environment where every employee has an opportunity to grow and bring their whole self to work.”
– Dan Brennan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
