We aim to be as diverse as the patients and customers we serve and the communities in which we operate. We work to cultivate an inclusive culture that empowers the varied and unique backgrounds and skills of our people as catalysts for our creativity and ingenuity. That commitment is realized through an enabling and respectful work environment, where our employees feel that they belong, are heard and are able to thrive.
We aim to cultivate a sense of inclusion and belonging for all employees that is a signature aspect of our culture by celebrating and leveraging our diversity and demonstrating how we close gaps.

REINFORCING OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
In May 2020, the senseless death of George Floyd ignited a global social movement against systemic racism and inequities that persist in the U.S. and across the globe. The social justice tensions have been compounded by the inequitable health, economic, and social impact of COVID-19 on historically marginalized communities.
Immediately following the news of George Floyd’s death, John Chiminski, Chair & CEO of Catalent, made a public statement and sent a Company-wide email to reaffirm our commitment to racial equity and stand in support and empathy with our employees.
Our Resource for Employees of African Culture & Heritage (REACH) employee resource group (ERG) mobilized quickly to lead a series of conversations on race, sharing personal stories and humanizing the impacts of systemic racism. REACH also worked directly with the executive leadership team to accelerate our efforts to advance equity within our Company and for our communities.
“Catalent does not tolerate any form of discrimination– racial or otherwise. We are indebted to our employee resource groups, many of them newly formed, who are supporting candid conversations across our Company on these issues.”
