Our commitment to women

Johnson & Johnson has been championing women and giving them the tools, resources and opportunities to succeed at work and at home since our founding more than 130 years ago.

We believe women can be catalysts for creating healthier people, healthier communities and a healthier world.

Women are innovators meeting today’s challenges and inventing tomorrow’s solutions. They are scientists and technologists. They are caregivers, mentors, mothers and innovators. They are the anchors of the family, leaders in our business and drivers of the global economy.

We must champion them. Celebrate them. Partner with them. And give them the freedom to pursue their passions.

Caring for women in our global community will fuel the future of human health.
