Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Sixteen Johnson & Johnson employees participated in a social experiment as part of the new Unconscious Bias campaign to find out how biases might cloud our impression of people surrounding us at work. But see for yourself.

iversity at Johnson & Johnson is about the unique perspective of our employees. It’s about them, their colleagues and the world we care for – all backgrounds, beliefs and the entire range of human experience – coming together. Every person views the world from a unique vantage point; a perspective that gives problem-solving potential ideas, solutions & strategies that, when mobilized, can bring health to billions.

Equity at Johnson & Johnson is about giving everyone the opportunity to be successful. It's about tailoring tools and resources to meet the unique needs of each individual and removing systemic barriers.

Inclusion at Johnson & Johnson is about creating a deep sense of belonging. It's about a culture where our employees are valued, ideas are heard, and where we collectively advance this culture for everyone.
