Zurich Pride 2019: A huge success

Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies in Switzerland is committed to openness and tolerance through targeted diversity measures, both internally and externally. For this reason, we were an official sponsor of this year's Zurich Pride 2019 for the first time. Under the motto "Strong in Diversity", Zurich Pride celebrated its 25th anniversary and Stonewall - the origin of the LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, inter, queer) movement - 50 years at the same time. Together with their friends and families, our J&J employees took part in the parade on June 15th and proudly stood up for the rights of the LGBT+ community.

With our commitment we set a further sign for acceptance and equality. We recognized early that Diversity & Inclusion is a long journey and that sponsoring and the presence at this event alone is not enough. For this reason, we have clear goals and plans for creating and maintaining equal opportunities for all. A variety of internal programs and initiatives are designed to raise employees' awareness of the value of diversity. Among other things, programs are offered to recognize and minimize unconscious bias.

"Diversity & Inclusion is not just written on paper, it is really lived. We are convinced that the best innovations can only be created if our employees reflect the full diversity of the world". Manùela Arnold, Business Director Switzerland and Diversity & Inclusion Champion.
