Best Practices for Diversity & Inclusion in Biopharma

Diversity and inclusion are integral parts of a successful organization’s culture

Join 3M during the Best Practices for Diversity & Inclusion in Biopharma luncheon held on September 10 from 12:00pm-3:00pm

Best Practices for Diversity & Inclusion in Biopharma

Diversity and inclusion are integral parts of a successful organization’s culture. Research by *McKinsey shows that more diverse companies are better able to win top talent and improve their customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making, and all that leads to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns. In McKinsey’s latest report, Diversity Matters, they looked at metrics such as financial results and the composition of top management and boards. The findings clearly showed that:


Companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35 percent more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians.

Companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15 percent more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians.

In the US, there is a linear relationship between racial and ethnic diversity and better financial performance.
