From The Company

At Johnson & Johnson, we treat Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) as we would any other business opportunity or challenge. We started by building a strategic plan, and then we completed an extensive situation assessment. This helped us to understand key insights internally and externally. 

Those insights led to the development of our evidence-based enterprise strategy, which helps us to prioritize and disproportionately invest in the initiatives that drive differentiated outcomes.

Our DEI strategy focuses on three main areas:

  1. Enhancing our culture of inclusion.
  2. Building a diverse and equitable workforce of the future.
  3. Better connecting DEI to our businesses to drive innovation and growth.

We have identified five critical success factors to help drive DEI outcomes at our company, which include

  1. Having the right tone at the top. Our CEO and senior leaders demonstrate their commitment and drive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as an organizational priority.
  2. Embedding our evidence-based strategy into systems and processes to drive equity.
  3. Implementing a strong communication and change management plan to engage all employees across our organization.
  4. Measuring what we do to drive accountability.
  5. And, lastly, focusing on DEI long-term outcomes, not short-term activities and programs.

In 2020, Johnson & Johnson committed $100 million over the next five years to close the health disparity gap by deploying our resources and expertise to provide equitable healthcare solutions for communities of color, and forging partnerships and alliances that address racial and social health determinants.
