Diversity & Inclusion
Embracing diversity and inclusion is at the core of our long-held value of respect for people.
Celebrating Our Differences. Sharing Our Success.
To solve some of the toughest challenges in medicine we need the most innovative ideas. That is why we are committed to creating and sustaining an open, inclusive and diverse environment, where everyone feels valued, respected and heard. Through the sharing of a diverse range of perspectives, experiences and skills, we can inspire each other to think differently, generate ideas and deliver innovative healthcare solutions.
Our efforts to ensure a diverse and inclusive environment for our employees span the globe. For us, embracing diversity means understanding, respecting, and valuing differences, including but not limited to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
“We firmly believe that our differences make a difference to our business and the patients we serve, because our unique backgrounds are helping us become the most innovative company in healthcare.”

In Ireland, we have several employee groups which foster a culture of belonging. These groups offer strong support networks and provide the opportunity to learn about the many cultures that make up Lilly. All employees are welcome and encouraged to join.
