A key component of our journey to becoming a great company is our commitment to global inclusion and diversity. Increased inclusion and diversity drives innovation, allows us to better understand patient and customer needs, and ultimately makes BD the best possible place for all associates to thrive. We value and respect diversity: to succeed in a dynamic industry, we have created a work environment where all associates can be their true self. Our people reflect the communities we live and work in, the customers and patients we serve, and our broad range of thought and experience. Their diversity is an integral part of our success.
Understanding I&D at BD
At BD, this is about being valued, respected and supported. It's about focusing on the needs of every individual and ensuring the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve their full potential.
We believe this means respecting and appreciating differences in ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, and religion.
