DEI Report: Fueling Creativity, Inspiring Innovation

Our latest report highlights the key progress we have made on our diversity, equity and inclusion journey.

Sustainability|Jun.28, 2023

With 115,000 employees serving people in more than 160 countries, we consider diversity an essential part of who we are as an organization and business.

It's our diverse thoughts and backgrounds that enable us to help millions of people live healthier, fuller lives from Costa Rica, to Minnesota, to Vietnam.

And it's this same diversity that fosters our inclusive environment, where each person can bring their true self to work.

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is reflected in our DEI Report, which shares the progress we’ve made on our DEI journey and details where we are headed.

"What truly makes Abbott a special place to belong is the support and encouragement our colleagues openly and generously give to each other to help everyone reach their full potential," said Mary Moreland, Executive Vice President, Human Resources. "Our purpose of helping people live healthier, fuller lives, provides our employees with the opportunity to change people's lives for the better. And at the same time, they are able to live their own best lives, be their true selves, and do their best work."

This work includes launching a pilot program in 2022 with four Historically Black Colleges and Universities, in partnership with Advancing Minorities' Interest in Engineering, to diversify the cybersecurity workforce.
