We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive company. Like most of our peers, we still have a lot of work to do, but we maintain a strong focus on our goal and know that we will get a little closer to it every day. We aim to have a strong organisation where diverse opinions, diverse backgrounds and diverse experiences lead to better decision-making that better serves the patients that we are here to help. Ensuring diversity and inclusion is an expected and natural consideration in all interactions, processes, policies and services is led by our Global Diversity and Inclusion Director in the Corporate Values Office and guided by our Global Diversity and Inclusion Teams.
We are committed to reflect the diverse nature of our Employees, Customers and Communities. Our diverse community includes people of different genders, ages, ethnicities, physical appearances, sexual orientations, religions, and educational backgrounds. We believe this diversity should be reflected fairly within our leadership and management teams and will review our internal processes and policies to remove any barriers and obstacles that may exist. We have already initiated “Careers without Borders” which allows employees to take on senior roles without a need to relocate to our HQ. By not requiring employees to relocate themselves and their families, results in increasing the representation and diversity of our leadership.
Closing the gender pay gap
We are committed to ensuring that employees are paid fairly and equitably. We will undertake annual pay audits, external benchmarking and review of internal processes to review any gender pay inequalities that may exist.
Education and raising awareness
We are committed to a programme of education and raising awareness amongst our employees. We promote and publicise various events in accordance with the diversity and inclusion calendar. We ensure that our managers and employees undertake appropriate training to raise their own understanding of what diversity and inclusion means and how they can contribute in creating an inclusive environment. We also undertake various data analysis and provide regular feedback to managers and employees.
Reducing inequalities in the provision of healthcare
As a company focused on improving reproductive medicine and maternal health globally, we also recognise the additional disparities that minority communities can face when trying to build a family.
