Building community

Our Diversity Networks and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) ensure that everyone has a platform to share their voice, collaborate across functions and programs, and advance programs and policies that promote more women and ethnically diverse employees into leadership roles. We have more than 31,000 employees involved in 12 ERGs and Diversity Networks across more than 250 hubs and chapters.

Diversity Networks give employees from underrepresented groups a platform and a pathway toward advocacy, exposure, and development. These networks are The African Descent Network; Asian Impact at Medtronic; Hispanic/Latino Network; Medtronic Women’s Network; and the PRIDE Network.

ERGs enhance the professional growth, development and engagement of Medtronic employees and support the Mission, goals, and values of the company. The grassroots nature of ERGs lay the groundwork for the Medtronic global inclusion, diversity, and equity (ID&E) strategy. Groups include:

  • African Descent Network
  • American Indian Employee Resource Group
  • Asian Impact at Medtronic
  • Awareness Benefiting Leadership and Employees About Disabilities
  • Christian Employee Resource Group
  • Hispanic Latino Network
  • Medtronic Jewish Community
  • Medtronic Seasoned Professionals
  • Medtronic Women’s Network
  • Medtronic Young Professionals
  • Muslims and Friends
  • PRIDE Network
  • Veterans Employee Resource Group
