Medtronic ranked No. 10 on The Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.
Medtronic has been named to Bloomberg’s 2023 Gender-Equality Index (GEI), joining 483 other companies.
The GEI tracks the performance of companies and how they support gender equality through policy development and representation, as well as their level of transparency on these efforts and their progress.
The index measures gender equality across the following five pillars: leadership and talent pipeline; equal pay and gender pay parity; inclusive culture; anti-sexual harassment policies; and external brand.
“To engineer the extraordinary, we must unleash the full potential of every single employee and innovate from a range of perspectives as diverse as the patient communities we serve,” said Dr. Sally Saba, Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer of Medtronic and President of Medtronic Foundation. “We are proud to be recognized as a leader in ID&E and remain steadfast in our commitment to zero barriers to equity and opportunity.”
Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index represents 45 countries and regions. Companies come from a variety of industries, including finance, technology and utilities.
“At Medtronic, we believe that innovation is a people-powered business, which is why removing barriers and fostering an inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace is critical to creating transformative, patient-centric healthcare technology,” said Geoff Martha, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Medtronic. “Our ability to serve more patients is dependent on bringing diverse thinking to the table and empowering every employee to reach their highest potential. I couldn’t be prouder to see firsthand the extraordinary outcomes already being unlocked as we continue to ingrain ID&E deeper into our businesses.”
