Advancing women in the workplace: Bloomberg recognizes BD

Company is named to Bloomberg’s 2020 Gender-Equality Index

Today, Bloomberg named BD to its 2020 Gender-Equality Index, recognizing the company’s commitment to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality in the workplace.

At BD, we know that creating a culture of individual belonging, as well as building and engaging diverse teams and leveraging the unique ideas, backgrounds and experiences of our associates will deliver better outcomes for our global marketplace. This is why we strive to be the company of choice for women to work, supporting our associates as they fulfill career and goal aspirations.

Over the last several years, we’ve worked hard to develop and retain a diverse workforce of women by leveraging the company’s pipeline of talent; assessing talent processes and policies that include attractive benefits and offerings; implementing conscious inclusion education for all associates; and intensifying our commitment to our goals every day.

BD proudly provides innovative products and complete solutions for cervical cancer screening programs and serves on the private sector delegation for the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, advocating for efforts aimed at ending preventable maternal and newborn mortality. The company has also partnered with the Global Financing Facility, and supported Every Woman Every Child, among several others.

Last year, the company was recognized by 2020 Women on Boards for having women make up at least 20% of its board of directors. BD also has a dedicated Associate Resource Group, Women’s Initiative Network (WIN), which provides our associates with opportunities for networking, mentorship and professional development, as well as advocating for an inclusive culture that embraces a diversity of skills and ideas.

As an organization, we will continue to make progress in effecting change in our culture by identifying new opportunities to drive an inclusive and diverse workplace. More information about the company’s positive workforce and impacts can be found in the FY 2018 Sustainability Report.
