We strengthen Medtronic by hiring and developing diverse talent, creating a culture of inclusivity, measuring our performance, and being transparent about our progress. Everyone contributes knowing they are making us more competitive as a company, which improves health for more patients in our global communities.
At the same time, to deliver equity, we recognize that we must move from offering the same to everyone (equality) and instead remove barriers by providing the right support so everyone has the same opportunities (equity). We actively listen, learn, and advocate for dignity, creating a level playing field with broad opportunities for employees throughout our global footprint.
We lead the way starting from a solid foundation built on accountability at every level. Examples include robust career development and education, inclusive hiring practices, data analytics, quarterly diversity reviews, and active, strong Diversity Networks and Employee Resource Groups. As we look to the future, we seek ways to amplify our impact beyond our walls and get to the root cause of lingering inequities.
