Purpose-driven Team Members
Diversity and Inclusion
As a purpose-driven, pharmaceutical-centered company focused on fueling growth through innovation, diversity and inclusion (D&I) is personal to AmerisourceBergen.
Our Diversity & Inclusion aspiration
In launching our new strategy, we established a new D&I aspiration: To create healthier futures and accelerate business results by inspiring the best and brightest global talent across all dimensions of diversity to perform at their full potential.
We are accelerating workforce diversity at every level by increasing organizational movement, strengthening our talent and performance processes, advancing diverse hiring, and differentially investing in diverse, high-potential talent. Highlights from our FY21 plan include establishing an early career rotation program and making additional investments in recruitment to establish new partnerships and create diverse talent-sourcing strategies.
We are cultivating a culture of equity, inclusion, and belonging across all dimensions of diversity, cultures, and geographies by launching a new leadership model for all team members, implementing a new modern D&I learning curriculum, expanding the reach and impact of our Employee Resource Group (ERG) program, and enhancing our people listening and feedback mechanisms. This year, we launched AmerisourceBergen's new ERG online platform to make it easier for team members to join ERGs, learn about initiatives, and connect with other members. Highlights from our FY21 plan include an intensive D&I workshop series with our top executive team led by Dr. Linda Hill, Harvard professor, author, and innovation and D&I expert. We are also creating a D&I-focused individual performance goal for all people managers and new inclusion, bias, and respectful workplace training for all managers and team members offered in partnership with the NeuroLeadership Institute and ELI, Inc.
We are committed to playing a meaningful role in communities we serve through customer engagement, corporate responsibility, and supplier diversity by expanding our diverse supplier network, increasing our diverse supplier spend, and maximizing the alignment between our charitable giving and D&I strategy. Highlights from our FY21 plan include new external memberships, creating a new supplier diversity portal, and introducing diverse supplier goals for senior leaders. We have also published a Global Human Rights Policy and strengthened our external D&I disclosures.
To ensure we sustain momentum and focus on our long-term D&I strategy, we have launched an Enterprise D&I Council chaired by Bob Mauch, Executive Vice President and Group President. The Enterprise D&I Council will be accountable for steering the long-term strategy and assessing the progress of outcome-based measures, including representation, diverse team member promotions, pay equity and turnover, operating income through innovation, diverse team member engagement scores, diverse supplier spend, and charitable giving demographics.
