Company continues to build on its inclusion and diversity commitment.
“McKesson is creating a better future through our collective commitment to move beyond unconscious bias and embrace conscious inclusion,” said Brian Tyler, chief executive officer, McKesson. “Now, more than ever, fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace is essential in supporting our employees, customers and our communities, and I couldn’t be prouder that McKesson continues to be recognized for our dedication to this important work.”
Launched in 2016, Diversity Best Practices is the preeminent organization for mid to large size organizational diversity thought leaders to share best practices and develop innovative solutions for culture change. Through research, resources, benchmarking, publications and events, Diversity Best Practices offers information and strategies on how to implement, grow, measure and create first-in-class diversity programs.
In this year’s index, McKesson was measured in three key areas: best practices in the recruitment, retention and advancement of people from underrepresented groups—women, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people; inclusive corporate culture, including leadership accountability; and demographic diversity for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
“We continue to work aggressively and thoughtfully towards our diversity goals and are always striving to foster an inclusive and diverse work culture that inspires belongingness and innovation,” said Traci Dunn, Vice President of Inclusion, Culture and Corporate Impact, McKesson. “It gives us the competitive edge needed to thrive in the healthcare industry where we want to advance matters of equality and inclusion.”
McKesson continues to build on its inclusion and diversity efforts by focusing on accelerating its talent pipeline, evolving its culture of inclusion and driving leader accountability. Simultaneously, leaders within the company are encouraging candid conversations to learn, grow and ensure that bias is not interfering with McKesson’s ability to make decisions and more importantly, that as a company McKesson stands up and leads during challenging times.
