Diversity Mission: At Bristol-Myers Squibb, having a diverse team of employees and an inclusive culture is vital for innovation and successfully executing our biopharma business strategy. We are committed to fostering a globally diverse workforce and a company-wide culture that encourages excellence, leadership, innovation and a balance between our personal and professional lives. Our workforce continues to evolve as we seek to reflect the diversity of our patients, our physicians, our shareholders and the communities in which we live and work. We view diversity in the broadest sense – including age, ethnicity, gender, appearance, race, physical abilities, religion, social-economic background, political affiliation, sexual orientation, thinking styles and life experiences.

Women represent almost a third of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s executive-level management and more than 46 percent of first- to mid-level management. The company also has employee resource groups, which offer opportunities for employees to network and pursue professional growth and development. The Women’s Resource Group encourages the development and promotion of women through education and outreach programs. Bristol-Myers Squibb’s other groups include the disABILITY Network Alliance, as well as groups for African-American, Asian, Hispanic, and LGBT employees. Our culture of inclusion enables us to create a work environment where all are free to fully contribute and reach their maximum potential. Our workforce diversity efforts are complimented by the work of our foundation, which focuses on addressing health disparities on a global scale, as well as our supplier diversity efforts.
