Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities. The organization strives to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people, values that closely align with those of J&J and our belief in Diversity, Inclusion and equal rights for all. Since 2016, J&J Family of Companies in Switzerland is a partner of Special Olympics Switzerland (SOSWI). In November 2020 we officially announced that J&J is now a Premium Partner of Special Olympics Switzerland, further strengthening our collaboration with a specific focus on health and inclusion of everyone.
Through our partnership, we enable our employees to volunteer in the various events of Special Olympics and support them in different roles. We also engage Special Olympics athletes in different activities to raise awareness and to create a culture of inclusion.
