Hate has No Place at Elanco

Elanco strives to foster the inclusion of all employees, customers and stakeholders around the world, and celebrate the diversity of its individuals. We unequivocally condemn hate-based violence, which targets people because of their differences, be it disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.  It has no place at Elanco.  

I am grateful for the support of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion that we see from grassroots efforts all the way to senior leadership, and we will continue to harness this momentum to further our journey.

Katie Schoenberg, Ph.D., Portfolio & Product Leader for Animal Care Expansion and Chair of Elanco's Diversity & Inclusion Council

Whether interacting with our teams or our customers, Elanco is committed to exemplifying these principles of inclusion, and being the safe haven its employees expect and deserve. An inclusive, equitable and diverse atmosphere is at the heart of that commitment, and Elanco will not waver in its achievement.

Elanco's Global Diversity & Inclusion Council: 

At Elanco, our diversity and inclusion commitment is backed by action. The Global Elanco Diversity and Inclusion Council (EDIC) serves as a catalyst for a culture where diversity and inclusion are embraced and recognized as a business-result driver. With this program, employee development is better supported, opinions and diverse backgrounds are embraced, and we are a stronger company.

Formed in 2015, the Council serves to connect the various groups across Elanco driving Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) initiatives. Council membership represents all of our Departments, Affiliates and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). It serves as an enabler of D&I efforts by creating space for discussion, brainstorming, problem solving and resource sharing. Current Council focus areas include our Be You! Seminar series to raise awareness and provide a forum for an open discussion on the importance of a diverse and inclusive workplace at Elanco and supporting employee development and growing our ERGs.

Elanco Employee Resource Groups (ERGs):

  • Elanco African American Network (EAAN)
  • Elanco Chinese Network (ECN)
  • Elanco Women's Network (EWN)
  • Elanco India Network
  • Elanco Young Professionals Network
  • Organization of Latinos/Hispanics at Elanco (OLHE)
  • Elanco PRIDE
