From The Company
At Medtronic, inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) means zero barriers to opportunity and a future where all employees belong and feel valued for who they are and the life experiences they contribute.
We have a passionate commitment to ID&E from our top leadership and a strong foundation already in place. Still, the pivotal nature of the year 2020 called us to do more. We’ve made bold commitments to ingrain ID&E at Medtronic, including doubling down on data transparency; linking compensation to ID&E goals; and shifting ownership of ID&E to business leaders. We’re also engaging in new partnerships (e.g., the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, OneTen, Catalyst CEO Champions for Change, and others) that help tackle systemic barriers that have persisted for far too long.
We are committed to contributing the breadth of who we are: our 95,000+ employees around the world, our supply chain, and our influence to drive meaningful, sustainable and equitable change in our communities. We do so because we know that having a diverse, inclusive and equitable work environment helps accelerate our 60-year-old Mission to alleviate pain, restore health and extend life to more people all around the world.
