Inclusion is First and Foremost
Our commitment to inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) is deeply rooted in The BD Way.
At BD, we firmly believe to deliver on our Purpose, we must foster an environment where everyone is heard because we know having more unique voices at the table creates better outcomes for patients and our customers. This means ensuring our associates feel seen, respected and valued. We want them to know they are part of the team, our company and our mission – and most importantly, feel comfortable being themselves and speaking up. We welcome people with the imagination and drive to help us reinvent the future of health. This is how we cultivate belonging, develop and advance our associates, and help them be successful in their careers so they can reach their full potential.
Our leadership is committed to making BD the best possible place for talented people to work by driving inclusion and diversity as a cultural and strategic imperative across the company.
We are the champions of a supportive, inclusive culture

Associate Resource Groups
We want every associate at BD to know they belong, and they have a welcoming place for their ideas. Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) are associate-led, company-sponsored, executive-supported groups that serve as catalysts of change through advocacy and allyship and provide a sense of community and acceptance for all associates and allies across our organization.
