Diversity & Inclusion
To meet our mission of helping patients to prevail over serious diseases, we are committed to developing a 21st-century workforce that is powerfully diverse and broadly inclusive, capable of discovering and developing important new medicines for patients around the world.
We view diversity in the broadest sense - including age, ethnicity, race, culture, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, abilities and disabilities, religion, socioeconomic background, veteran status, thinking styles, and life experiences, among other differences. Through a culture of inclusion, we create an agile and responsive work environment where the diverse experiences and perspectives of all our employees help to drive innovation and transformative business results.
Bristol Myers Squibb Ireland is dedicated to hiring a diverse workforce. Our reason for this is simple; in order to truly serve our patients and communities, we must rely on a workforce that reflects the marketplace we serve. We leverage personal and professional business experience to help us drive business results, and serve as the voice of Bristol Myers Squibb in the local community.
Recognising people’s differences gives us access to a broad range of scientific and business insights, strengthens our competitive advantage, and helps us achieve our patient-centred mission most effectively and most efficiently.
Bristol Myers Squibb Ireland, provides all employees with a foundational understanding about diversity in the workplace and how inclusive behaviours can enhance business results. These learnings include unconscious bias training. These are further reinforced in the organisation through Inclusion Dialogues as well as on Diversity Moments.
Through a culture of Diversity & Inclusion, Bristol Myers Squibb Ireland creates an agile and responsive work environment where the diverse experiences and perspectives of all our employees help to drive innovation and transformative business results.
The Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation
The company's workforce diversity efforts are complemented by the work of our Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation, which focuses on addressing health disparities on a global scale.
Global Diversity and Inclusion Partnerships
To advance a diverse and inclusive culture, we leverage important external relationships with professional organisations that are highly regarded thought leaders and influencers in the area of diversity. These critical partnerships provide opportunities to source diverse talent, enable the advancement of diverse populations, and provide unique development experiences for employees.
People and Business Resource Groups (PBRGs) represent one key strategy we use to support the business objectives, career advancement and development needs of our employees.
Employees voluntarily come together around a single dimension of diversity to help drive business results.
Members network, learn skills, participate in learning development events and contribute to the company's business objectives in a tangible way.
