Driven by our Principles

Our purpose is profound, and our path is clear. We know we are at our best when all voices are heard and valued, and when our employees can contribute their best. That’s why embracing Equality, Diversity & Inclusion is one of our core Principles.

We treat everyone equally, with dignity and respect. Around the world, our employees embrace diverse backgrounds and perspectives, which allows us all to achieve our best.

We are deeply concerned about the state of racial equality and social justice in the U.S. Each of us has to stand up and reject bias, racism and the lack of real inclusion. Read more about AbbVie's efforts.

Why it matters

For our people: When everyone can be themselves at work and when they’re treated with respect and dignity, we maximize every employee’s potential.

For our patients: Developing and delivering innovative life-changing medicines for our diverse patients with unique health challenges requires thoughtfulness and creativity that only comes from a wide range of inputs.

For our business: ED&I is good for our people and patients, and also for our business—strengthening performance, helping us innovate and understand our customers, and retaining the best talent.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion is the key to our success

With a focus on recruiting, developing, retaining and performing, our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion strategy enables us to raise the bar and continue growing. Learn how we are doing this.
