Diversity & Inclusion

At Lilly, our people bring diverse experiences, perspectives and cultural backgrounds to work every day. It’s a dynamic, inclusive culture that provides fertile ground for scientific innovation and stronger connections with customers. 

Our diversity powers our purpose to make life better for patients around the world. Our differences make a difference. 

Year after year, we strive to increase the number of women, minority group members and other diverse populations in leadership roles. To do this, we help make sure everyone can contribute fully as their authentic selves and grow in their careers. 

That starts with understanding. We have carefully studied the journeys of women, African Americans, Latinos, Asians and LGBTQ employees to understand their unique experiences. 

Powerful insights from this research have led to company-wide changes that are improving our culture for everyone. Because that’s what it takes to fulfill our purpose. 

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, if you want to make life better for patients around the world, you belong here. Your differences make a difference.
