Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We value, respect and celebrate diversity within our global workforce.

Committed to DEI every day

In partnership with our dedicated team members, the Elanco Global DEI Council promotes a healthier enterprise by helping make our Employee Promise of an inclusive culture come to life. This employee-led and leadership-supported group influences the company’s strategic DEI direction and initiatives.

We’re working to build a diverse global workforce, underpinned by a culture that fosters a sense of belonging, values unique differences and points of view, ensures individuals are treated fairly and equitably, and encourages people to bring their whole self to work every day.

DEI efforts empower each of us to live our lives in and out of work as our authentic selves. We celebrate our differences and a culture that not only supports us as individuals but values the unique thoughts we bring. Elanco doesn't just talk about DEI, our employees live and drive it forward, and that is why I am proud to be part of our Global DEI council
