At AbbVie, we embrace diversity and inclusion in all that we do. Our
employees are the custodians of our commitment to diversity and
together we ensure that it is a central part of our organisational culture.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) Council is
sponsored by our most senior leaders and is run by a group of highly
motivated and dedicated employees. The team have a solid strategy that
is well resourced and measurable, to ensure that the commitment to
ED&I is always treated as a core priority to the business.
Why it matters
For our people: When everyone can
be themselves at work and when they’re treated with respect and
dignity, we maximise every employee’s potential.
patients: Developing and delivering innovative life-changing
medicines for our diverse patients with unique health challenges
requires thoughtfulness and creativity that only comes from a wide
range of inputs.
For our business: ED&I is good for
our people and patients, and also for our business—strengthening
performance, helping us innovate and understand our customers, and
retaining the best talent.
