From The Company

Diversity is fundamental at Abbott — in our people, mindsets and business models. It’s embedded in our values and core to fulfilling our purpose: helping people live their best, healthiest lives.

At Abbott, we believe that diverse perspectives and shared goals inspire new ideas that help us find solutions to the world’s most pressing healthcare challenges and make them accessible and available to as many people as possible.

That’s why diversity is ingrained in how we work and think, and key to our long-term success as a company with 109,000 employees operating in more than 160 countries.

We work hard to make Abbott a place where all our employees feel valued and respected and experience a sense of inclusion that allows them to pursue their best careers. This means integrating diversity, equity and inclusion in all areas of our business, and building teams that reflect the communities we live in and serve.

There are many ways Abbott does this, but one strong example is our commitment to advancing opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to girls and underrepresented students. We created a successful high school STEM internship and shared the program blueprint with other companies to develop similar programs.

Abbott is building a diverse, innovative workforce of tomorrow, giving employees the opportunity to change people’s lives for the better while living their best lives personally and professionally. Abbott looks forward to sharing its diversity and inclusion data and goals in the coming months.
