Johnson & Johnson has a deep-rooted morality that runs
throughout the company’s business units and vast global
operations. The company’s credo, which puts the welfare of
its customers, employees, communities and stockholders ahead
of all else, has been the most significant factor in its increasing
commitment to diversity. That increasing commitment has been
evidenced by its strong showing on this list in recent years.

Johnson & Johnson, under the guidance of Vice President, Global
Diversity & Inclusion, and Chief Diversity Officer Anthony Carter,
has made great strides in communicating the vitality of its diversity commitment to its business goals. The message has been infused
through all business units and is clear in the company’s strong results
in all four areas measured by the DiversityInc Top 50 survey. Chairman
and CEO William C. Weldon’s support of diversity has been relentless
and includes regular meetings with employee-resource groups, using the corporate intranet to communicate his commitment to diversity and linking executive compensation to diversity goals.
The company has diverse demographics in its workforce and management and has superior work/life
benefits, including: retirement transition; paid time off for volunteering; a work/life resource and referral program; eldercare and adult-management services; childcare discounts, resources and referrals and
onsite daycare; resources for parenting and grandparenting; and health-risk assessments and referrals.
The nine employee groups include an Association of Middle Eastern and North African Heritage, a
South Asian Professional Network & Association and a Veteran’s Leadership Council. Twenty percent
of its employees are members of the employee groups.
The commitment to philanthropy and communities is strong and carries over to suppliers. The
company sponsors full scholarships for diverse suppliers to attend Kellogg and Tuck business executive programs and also sponsors certification training for dozens of suppliers annually, along with
memberships and professional development.
WILLIAM C. WELDON Chairman & CEO “Diversity and inclusion is an enabler for our company’s future growth. It plays an important role in the way we look to innovate, develop talent and leverage diverse insights in caring for the health and well- being of our patients and customers
around the world. Continuing to
strengthen our diversity and inclu-
sion efforts across the Johnson &
Johnson Family of Companies is a
critical business imperative.”
ANTHONY CARTER Vice President, Global Diversity & Inclusion, Chief Diversity Officer “Sustaining our success demands that we continue to take a proac- tive approach to managing global diversity and inclusion. This means embedding our diversity and inclu- sion strategies into every element of
our businesses and using the power
of D&I to drive superior business
outcomes. We are proud of our ac-
complishments and recognize there
is still more to do.”
