RED SECTION -J& J commitment
JOHNSON & JOHNSON COMMITS $100 MILLION OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS TO INVEST AND PROMOTE HEALTH EQUITY SOLUTIONS:
We aspire to help eradicate racial and social injustice as a public health threat by eliminating health inequities for people of color. That’s why we launched Our Race to Health Equity, our Organization’s pledge to eliminate health inequities for communities of color, starting with a $100 million financial commitment¬ over the next 5 years to invest in health equity solutions and to support programs that address racial injustice and health inequities.
Our commitment to bold action prioritizes 3 key areas:
People First Culture
Cultivate one of the most diverse and inclusive workforces that inspires innovative healthcare solutions around the world.
- We are committed to hiring more diverse employees and have set a goal of achieving 50% growth of our African American talent at the manager and above levels in the U.S. over the next five years.
Help close the racial mortality gap by investing in culturally competent community care models that create health outcomes for people of color.
- In order to better connect clinical and medical care with social and cultural needs, we are introducing new scholarships, mentoring and non-financial support to improve representation of people of color in medical, scientific, and health professions.
Lead and leverage J&J's powerful partnership network to combat racial and social health determinants.
- Starting this year, we will introduce alliances, collaborations and partnerships that support health equity solutions and educational programming ranging from maternal health resources to inspiring black students to pursue science and health careers.
We recognize there is work to be done and as the largest healthcare company in the world, we are uniquely positioned to convene private, public and community organizations in pursuit of this shared aspiration—to put health within reach for everyone, everywhere.
