People. Products. Technologies. Geographies.

You’ll find diversity in all these aspects of Abbott. Diverse perspectives help us solve some of the world’s most pressing healthcare challenges.

That’s why we’re proud to rank 8th on this year’s DiversityInc magazine’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.

More proof diversity is part of our DNA? It’s the 17th consecutive year we’re on the list.

“Diversity is one of Abbott’s defining characteristics,” said Robert B. Ford, President and Chief Executive Officer, Abbott. “We have a diversified business model because we understand that the differences make us stronger overall. Doing business in more than 160 countries with distinct cultures just reinforces that understanding. So, of course we bring that same conviction to the way we think about people, as well.”

At Abbott, we believe more diversity of thought in our labs and workspaces means we can create even better life-changing breakthroughs. We work hard to make Abbott a place where everyone can feel a sense of inclusion and have their best career.

“I’m so proud that our commitment to diversity has again been recognized as being among the best of the best,” said Vildan Kehr, Divisional Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition, Abbott. “Diversity and inclusion are critical to our business success, the continued growth and development of our colleagues, and the impact we have around the world in helping people live their fullest lives.”
