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.

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.
