Employee Resource Groups

Over 100 local employee groups are working to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) so we can make the most of what everyone has to offer.

Having a shared understanding of what’s most important to all improves our collective capacity to do our best for patients and communities. That’s why I’m ‘all in’ with DE&I.

Our Framework for Employee Engagement

Our Global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) turn local insights into action for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Global ERGs include Gender+, Generations+, Pride+, Ability+, and Culture and Origins+.  

Each has a leader to help countries share ideas and best practices, and an Executive Committee member to sponsor them at the highest level. Our thriving ERG movement is helping us meet our DE&I goals. 

The Value of ERGs

ERGs help create a diverse, inclusive workplace to achieve greater impact. Our global ERGs set clear direction across our five diversity strands, and facilitate connection and knowledge-sharing between local ERGs. That’s how we turn local ERG knowledge into global action.

What Are We Working On?

We invest in training and awareness and actively foster allyship. Our Global Allyship Guide and ERG strategy help ensure all of us can bring our best selves to work and thrive.
