Diversity & Inclusion fuels our mission

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 promise to invent for life. We foster a diverse workforce where employees feel comfortable bringing their unique perspectives to work.

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 mission, not only will they thrive, but our company will, too.
