Empower A Diverse Workforce

At Lilly, we believe in the power of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) to fulfill our purpose of creating medicines that make life better for people around the world. At our core, we believe that by leveraging the varied backgrounds of our more than 35,000 employees – and by driving actionable and measurable strategies to improve DEI, including diversity within our clinical trials – we can better deliver scientific breakthroughs.

We take a data-driven approach to DEI so that our business and employee base better reflect the world around us. We recognize that the wide array of races, ethnicities, abilities, ages, religions, sexual orientations, genders and political views in our communities serve as a catalyst for innovation and creativity that contribute to the health and prosperity of society.

Lilly’s values of integrity, excellence and respect for people foster an environment where employees are encouraged to speak up, share ideas and be fully engaged, while bringing their authentic selves to work every day. We strive to create a culture where each person feels welcomed, respected, valued and heard. Our strategic DEI priorities are designed to empower our organization with inclusion capabilities, embed equity in our processes and elevate our business outcomes. We believe that with an inclusive culture, Lilly can innovate, accelerate and deliver life-changing medicines that make a difference.

To solve some of the toughest challenges in medicine, we need the best people with the best, most creative ideas. We embrace our differences, and it’s driving business success.
