An Innovative work environment: diversity & inclusion

An innovative work environment: diversity & inclusion

At Danaher, we appreciate different perspectives and work hard to create an inclusive work environment where our associates can deliver better and more innovative products to our customers.

We believe that an inclusive environment is an environment that is ripe for innovation and ideas — because inclusion creates a space for associates to bring their best selves to work — and ultimately their best ideas. So, we work hard to attract and develop associates who value differences and look to contribute their diversity of thought, work style and background needed to advance our culture. We are an equal opportunity employer and make employment decisions based on skill, experience and career aspiration.

To ensure that our leaders are equipped, all Danaher leaders participate in annual diversity training that addresses real diversity issues facing employers today.

Working alongside our Chief Diversity Officer is Danaher’s Diversity & Inclusion Council. Together they are leading the organization on this journey to a more inclusive work environment. The D&I Council is made up of leaders representing a variety of backgrounds, cultures, regions and perspectives. With the CEO sponsorship and support, the Council’s areas of focus include:
