To drive innovation and become more competitive, we must create an environment where every individual feels welcomed and respected.
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are voluntary groups of employees who join in the workplace based on shared characteristics or life experiences and serve as a resource for members and organizations by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational goals. Our ERGs provide important connections, perspectives and guidance on the inclusion issues that are the most critical for the business to consider and help drive our strategic D&I initiatives.
Members of our executive leadership team have taken on the role of executive sponsors of our ERGs to support them and ensure they are well-connected with Catalent’s business, values, and priorities.
In fiscal 2020, we added SERVE, ADAPT, and LEAD to our global ERG networks, which now include more than 40 ERG chapters. In early fiscal 2021, we launched a new ERG, Asian and Pacific Islanders Reaching for Excellence (ASPIRE), bringing our total number to eight.
We continue to enhance our culture of inclusion by strengthening and growing ERG operations and networks, working with them to help us meet our talent attraction, retention, and development objectives. ERGs are also helping us build a system of policies and practices to create equity in our employees’ journeys and an employment experience that supports their careers and personal lives.

Our ERGs foster an inclusive culture at Catalent by providing community, support and resources for employees from diverse and minority groups and their allies.
