inclusion, diversity & equity
Zero barriers to equity
Inclusion, diversity, and equity play a critical role in driving our competitiveness, bringing more creativity, better decision-making, and enhanced innovation.
Inclusion, diversity, and equity (ID&E) play a critical role in driving our competitiveness, bringing more creativity, better decision-making, and enhanced innovation. This helps ensure our lifesaving technologies reach more patients around the world.
Our unwavering commitment to ID&E means working toward zero barriers to opportunity. It also means promoting a culture where all employees feel they belong, are respected, and feel valued for who they are. We know equity reaches beyond our workplace, and we take an active role in addressing systemic inequities in our communities.
Our Mission is behind our relentless push for equity. For 60 years and counting, it has inspired us to do the extraordinary to improve human welfare.
We are creating a future that requires all our strengths — including our 90,000-plus employees, our buying power, and our influence as a leading healthcare technology company — to advance equity in our workplace, our industry, and our communities.
–Dr. Sally Saba, Medtronic Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer and President of the Medtronic Foundation
