Our associates come from all backgrounds, races, ages, colors, creeds, religions, genders, and orientations, and we are better because of this. We value and respect diversity, and to succeed in a dynamic industry we have created a work environment where all associates can be their true selves. Our people reflect the communities we live and work in, the customers and patients we serve, and our broad range of thought and experience. Their diversity is an integral part of our success.
“ We are on a journey to build a more inclusive workplace here at BD. We are focused on making sure our associates, around the globe, trust they can be their true selves, feel comfortable speaking up, and share their best and most innovative thinking, while growing and developing in their careers. We understand that when more people and different perspectives have a seat at the table, we can produce better, more innovative products and services for our customers. ”
