Medtronic Employee Resource Groups, such as Pride EMEA build solid cross-company relationships, connecting you with career knowledge you can’t get anywhere else.

Ending injustice and creating equality

Members of Employee Resource Groups can network with people, join and lead teams, and attend career development events.

"Being against homophobia is not enough. Together we have the opportunity at Medtronic to act with and for each other to end injustice and create equality. Be who you are! Happy to be part of that," adds Louise.

Ensuring voices of the community are heard

In the United States, Medtronic Employee Resource Groups include its African Descent Network, Asian Descent Network and Hispanic Descent Network.

The PRIDE network and the Medtronic Women’s Network are global communities. 

These networks are critical to ensuring the voice of the community is heard. The groups work closely with senior leaders and HR personnel to create programs that help further the advancement of diverse employees.
