Supplier Diversity

expand

We recognize the importance of having a diverse supplier base that reflects our patients and customers around the world. By working with small and diverse suppliers, we tap into new ideas that add value to our businesses and provide innovative solutions to our marketing, manufacturing and research & development efforts. Our Supplier Diversity Program helps us attract qualified small and diverse suppliers to support our business needs.

Our commitment to Supplier Diversity led us to establish a formal Office of Supplier Diversity in 1998 in addition to our ongoing active outreach program. The Office is integrated into our operating companies through Supplier Diversity leadership representatives, and also includes additional representation for our corporate and category leadership teams.

Our Voices

We believe that when our supplier base reflects the diversity of the consumers and patients who use our products and services, we achieve our mission of helping people live longer, happier, healthier lives.

Ultimately, it’s about ensuring that we respond to our responsibility and obligation to our communities, and working with our suppliers to create global good wherever we can.

For almost 10 years, we have grown together to what we now consider a global platform. Johnson & Johnson has made us a better company by supporting our business aspirations and serving as an exemplary example of citizenship, diversity and inclusion.

The sponsorship to attend the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University is an investment in a supplier partner to grow in scope and scale, so we can continue our services globally in the future for Johnson & Johnson.
