Diversity & Inclusion

expand


People and values are our greatest assets. We know that every invention, every product, and every breakthrough we’ve brought to human health and well-being has been powered by people. Not ordinary people, though, but people whose personal values drive them to make a difference in the world. We believe the shared values embodied in Our Credo help us attract and keep the most talented values-driven people in the world.

Diversity is a central part of the cultures across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. It’s a key to our people’s passion for improving the health and well-being of people the world over. Furthermore, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is deeply rooted in the values instilled by Our Credo and is exemplified in a number of our companies’ programs and activities.

We recognize that differences in age, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, thinking style and background bring richness to our work environments. Such differences help us connect better with the health needs of people in communities around the world.

We believe that attracting, developing and retaining a base of employees that reflects the diversity of our customers is essential to our success. We also believe success hinges on relationships with diverse professional and patient organizations, civic groups and suppliers.

Our Voices

Diversity & Inclusion at Johnson & Johnson is not just a commitment — it is the reality of how we live and work. The best innovations can only come if our people reflect the world's full diversity of individuals, opinions and approaches.

We embed diversity & inclusion in our businesses, promote equal access to opportunity for all our employees and hold our leaders accountable for all members of their teams.

Diversity is an essential part of the answer to the challenge of innovation. We have to be open to different ways of thinking about what qualities we want to be diverse: diversity of identity, diversity of age and diversity of outlook.

I have seen firsthand how beautifully our company values the diversity of its employees — enabling us to leverage our passion to make a difference for the company, its people and our patients.

Diversity is important in any organization, as it affords the company the opportunity to develop different ideas, embrace different cultures and provides an all-in-one vision.

Johnson & Johnson is a model of excellence in regard to diversity and inclusion. It is all about bringing our authentic self to work, which allows us to reach our full potential.

  • Build a Diverse Workforce for the Future
    We understand that one of the most effective ways of understanding and meeting the needs and desires of our diverse customers and patients is to have a workforce that reflects diversity.
  • Enhance Business Results and Reputation
    Understanding and serving the needs of diverse patients and customers is simply the way we all must operate to drive innovation and growth, and continue to be a thriving and sustainable business.
About Diversity & Inclusion at Johnson & Johnson
At Johnson & Johnson, Diversity & Inclusion is a business imperative to help us drive innovation and growth, not simply the “right thing to do.”
