Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I)
Our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) is embedded in our values and is a priority across the business. We believe our workforce should reflect the communities in which we operate and the customers and patients we serve. We also know that diversity within our teams will drive opportunity identification and problem solving in support of our mission. The goal is to create an environment where everyone can bring their authentic self to work and where a broad range of thoughts and experiences are recognized and encouraged. This starts at the top of our organization with our leadership teams and is being driven throughout the company.
