Medtronic Diversity Networks & Employee Resource Groups

Medtronic Diversity Networks & Employee Resource Groups

 July 13, 2021

One of the many ways Medtronic fosters an inclusive environment is through its Diversity Networks and Employee Resource Groups.

Medtronic's Diversity Networks leaders are teams appointed by Medtronic's CEO. They champion programs and policies that advance more women and ethnically diverse employees into leadership roles.

Betsy Sammons, Principal Area Market Development Manager at Medtronic in Colorado [pictured above], is a member of Medtronic's Veterans Employee Resource Group and encourages participation. "Medtronic truly values all employees as part of our corporate culture...I lead to make our workplace and our community better for everyone."

Ensuring the voice of the community it heard

In the United States, Medtronic has an African Descent Network, Asian Descent Network and Hispanic Descent Network. The PRIDE network and the Medtronic Women’s Network are global communities.

These unique networks are critical to ensuring the voice of the community is heard. They work closely with senior leaders and HR to create programs to further the advancement of diverse employees.

Retaining, developing and engaging employees

Medtronic's Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are built on shared interests and affinities that create a fabric of support to retain, develop, and engage employees locally. ERGs focus on professional development and community building at a grassroots level.

  • African American Resource Group
