Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: It's Who We Are
As a Danaher operating company, one of our most important goals is to continuously improve and sustain a welcoming, inclusive culture. We know that by attracting, developing and retaining the best team of diverse, engaged and empowered associates, we help realize life's potential for our customers, our shareholders and ourselves.
But our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DE+I) is not just one of many "programs" or a short-term "initiative" at our company.
It's not just a catchphrase one posters or email signatures. It's much more than words.
It's who we are.

Our DE+I Journey
The first major milestone in our DE+I journey will be 2025, the year for which we set our initial goals in 2020. By 2025, we hope to have a workforce that includes:
What does DE+I mean at our company?
It means you're encouraged to be your authentic self 24 hours a day - not just before and after work.
It means you can consider participating in a local D+I Council, our global Diversity Champion Network, or Danaher Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) created to help nurture a culture of belonging. And on a regular basis, associates are encouraged to share their perspectives with colleagues via a forum we call BEC LS Voices.
Finally, it means you'll join more than 3,400 associates across the globe who bring their unique skills, backgrounds and perspectives to work with them each day.
