Equity, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Embracing equity, equality, diversity and inclusion (EED&I) is fundamental at AbbVie. We are proud to offer an environment that allows our colleagues around the world to achieve their full potential.

Our Commitment 

We are committed to equity, equality, diversity and inclusion (EED&I). It’s fundamental to who we are and it’s just how we “do good business”. This includes valuing diverse perspectives, creating an inclusive culture and treating all employees with dignity and respect. 

“As we work to meet the world’s toughest challenges head on, our diverse team and inclusive culture enables us to achieve our vision of making a remarkable impact on patients’ lives.”
Stewart Musselle, Talent Acquisition Manager, AbbVie UK

“The work we are doing to drive equity, equality, eliminate bias and inspire inclusion is about acceptance, and activation of the sameness and the differences of all of us. This work simply lifts others as we all climb.”
Rae Livingston, Chief Equity Officer, AbbVie

Why it matters

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

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

For our business: EED&I is good for our people and patients, and also for our business—strengthening performance, helping us innovate and understand our customers, and retaining the best talent.

AbbVie UK Employee Resource Groups

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) enrich our workplace by promoting awareness and appreciation of our diversity, and supporting people of all backgrounds to develop and thrive in the organisation.
