Supplier diversity & inclusion

Johnson & Johnson has long recognized that diverse suppliers play an important role in our success. Our award-winning Global Supplier Diversity & Inclusion program, founded in 1998, aims to ensure that businesses with diverse ownership, control or operations become valued partners and grow with Johnson & Johnson.

Many programs support our spending goals, such increasing the visibility of small and diverse suppliers and social enterprises in our worldwide purchasing platform and hosting buyer-supplier matchmaking events. We also help suppliers qualify for our Global Supplier Diversity & Inclusion program or help them grow to meet Johnson & Johnson’s needs through mentoring programs and by connecting suppliers to external resources. In addition, Johnson & Johnson supports and partners with more than 30 advocacy organizations around the world to identify diverse suppliers and social enterprises and to support their development.

We set ambitious goals for our program and work hard to meet or exceed them. As part of Johnson & Johnson’s Health for Humanity 2025 Goals, we committed to achieve a Global Impact Spend of $4.5 billion by 2025. We exceeded that goal in 2021, and we continue to expand our reach to deliver the positive impact our stakeholders deserve.

Increasing our diverse supplier base—and engaging all suppliers on the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion—helps us contribute to improved social and economic outcomes and reflects the diversity of our patients and stakeholders around the world.
