Johnson & Johnson on ‘The X Factor’ and Empowering Its Women Workforce Since 1886

Originally published at jnj.com. Johnson & Johnson is a DiversityInc Hall of Fame company.

 

Johnson & Johnson hired its first female scientist in 1908 — no small feat during an era when less than 3% of women attended college. Then again, this is hardly surprising for a company whose first 14 employees included eight women — and whose workforce today is nearly 50% female. In fact, Johnson & Johnson’s diversity and inclusion programs helped it claim the #2 spot on the Thomson Reuters Diversity & Inclusion Index in 2017.

Gender Fair — an organization that rates companies on their fairness practices for leadership, employee policies, advertising and philanthropy — also certified Johnson & Johnson as being Gender Fair in 2018. The company ranked in the 93rd percentile of companies assessed for eligibility — and was named the top-ranking over-the-counter/pharmaceutical company with the certification. Only 16% of analyzed Fortune 500 companies meet certification standards.

Here are some key facts and figures that show how Johnson & Johnson has worked to advance and celebrate women both inside and outside the company for over 130 years.
