…so we can make a remarkable impact on patients

Developing and bringing innovative, life-changing medicines to patients requires diversity of thought – and diversity of thought comes from a diverse workforce. Additionally important, we serve a wide variety of patient populations around the world and it is crucial that as a company, we reflect them and represent their voices.

At AbbVie, we believe having a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture is a business necessity – our commitment to Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is fundamental to who we are, how we operate and how we treat each other.

Deeply concerned about equity in all forms and social justice

We’re committed to advancing equality and inclusion through our continued growth and acceptance of each other and ensuring a culture of equity in how we address challenges. This is the way we do business, attract and develop talent and serve our community. We know that there is more to be done, and we are committed to listening and working toward lasting and meaningful change.

Why equity, equality, diversity and inclusion matters


When everyone can be themselves at work and when they’re treated with respect and dignity, we maximize every employee’s potential.


Developing and delivering innovative life-changing medicines for our diverse patients with unique health challenges requires thoughtfulness and creativity that comes from having a wide range of inputs.


EEDI is good for our people, our patients and our business—engaging our talent, strengthening performance, and helping us continuously innovate for our customers and patients.

We can’t change the world, but we can make AbbVie a role model for fairness, inclusion, and the rejection of bias and racism.
