Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Elanco
As a leading animal health organization, we value, respect and celebrate diversity within our global workforce by encouraging employees to bring their whole self to work and committing to their personal and professional growth. Our Employee Promise states that together, we foster an inclusive culture where everyone can make a difference, encouraging ownership, growth and well-being, while focusing on customers and the animals in their care.
Elanco has a broad view on diversity, including gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, skill set, educational background, disability/ability, among other aspects. Our employees’ unique experiences and backgrounds allow us to meet challenges effectively and perform efficiently at a global level. Our comprehensive DEI strategy starts with targeted recruitment efforts, inclusion and equity learning opportunities for leaders and all employees, dedicated mentorship, and development opportunities for individuals from underrepresented groups and continued acknowledgement of the needs of our diverse workforce through the evolution of our benefits, including holidays and parental leave.
“As Chair of the Elanco Women's Network in APAC I can see the real difference Elanco’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is making for our female colleagues, our teams and our business performance”
— Mukta Arora, MD Elanco Innovation Alliance Centre India and Chair Elanco Women's Network APAC
“Few parts of the world are as culturally diverse as ASEAN and the wider APAC region – from business cultures and agricultural systems to cross-border team dynamics and customer needs. It brings challenges for sure, but our ability to harness the benefits of that diversity will be a key driver of our growth and success into the future. It’s also a key reason why I love my job at Elanco"
— Ric Lee, Senior Country Director, Indonesia, Philippines & Malaysia
"At Elanco, we establish a culture that embraces diversity, equality and inclusion. Diversity is the ‘what’ (demographics of workforce such as gender, race, age, background, etc.) and Inclusion is the ‘how’ that focuses on efforts to enable employees feel safe, respected, treated fairly and happy at work.
