Diversity & inclusion fuels our purpose

Diversity & inclusion are key to how we operate, how we engage employees and how we drive competitive advantage.

Our workforce represents the people we serve

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) are not just words – they are the reason we are able to deliver on our purpose: We use the power of leading-edge science to save and improve lives around the world.

But diversity is only half of the story; inclusion is just as important. Inclusion means a sense of belonging. When our employees know they are crucial to our work, not only will they thrive, but our company will, too.

GD&I learning and development programs

We leverage a broad range of learning and development opportunities, such as our Foundations of D&I course and the Diverse Leadership Program.

Global diversity & inclusion ambassador teams

Our global diversity & inclusion ambassador teams integrate our business strategy with our people strategy.
