Johnson & Johnson companies have long recognized that small and diverse suppliers play an important role in the success of our businesses. As a result, Johnson & Johnson companies have had an active outreach program in place for many years, and established a formal Office of Supplier Diversity in the U.S. in 1998.
The Supplier Diversity Program of the Johnson & Johnson companies was established to meet the following objectives:
- To support the communities in which we live and work through wealth and job creation.
- To reflect the diversity of the consumers and patients who benefit from our products.
- To respond to the requirements of our customers who expect Johnson & Johnson companies to share their values.
- To partner with superior, small and diverse firms, and advocacy groups that can provide value to our businesses, and throughout our supply chain.
