Action requires leadership. And we’re in.
In the US, issues around diversity and inclusion are at an inflection point, and the business community cannot stand idle. The CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace, and Hillrom is proud to participate.
The companies and individuals in the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion stand committed to work together on solutions and actions that can influence the national dialogue and inspire change. By signing onto this commitment, Hillrom is pledging to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected, and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
As part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, Hillrom has already taken several specific actions:
"For Hillrom, and for me personally, diversity and inclusion are non-negotiable. Only with a diverse workforce—one in which everyone is encouraged to share their authentic selves and face uncomfortable truths—can we hope to enhance outcomes for the patients and caregivers we serve all around the world. Whether you’re a Hillrom employee, supplier, customer or shareholder, I invite you to join me in this important work."
