Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion is not a program at Bayer, it's the way we do business and make life better for all. D&I plays an important role in meeting and anticipating the needs of our customers. To sustain and grow our business across all world areas, we require diverse business perspectives and the flexibility to work with a variety of people wherever we conduct business.
“Our commitment to inclusion and diversity is a commitment to employees, our team, and the customers we serve. It’s about creating an environment where employees can fulfill their potential while harnessing their diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to make us stronger. It’s about giving all of us – individually and together – the best possible chance to grow and succeed.” -Philip Blake, Senior Bayer Representative and President, Bayer U.S.
Creating an inclusive environment where employees of all genders, ethnicities, backgrounds and orientations feel welcome and able to contribute is core to creating a great place to work. Our employees proudly reflect the society we live in and demonstrate the value of diverse thinking in bringing best in class solutions for the benefit of all. We search for the brightest talent, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation (real or perceived).
