Diversity, equity, and inclusion
Becoming Cencora in FY23 not only brought together all our companies and services under one new name, but it also enabled us to evolve our focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to better serve our global team. We spent the year working globally to integrate our teams and enhance our culture of inclusion, as well as leverage benchmarks of availability for talent in the marketplace to assess whether we were attracting and retaining our fair share of great talent. By giving everyone a greater sense of belonging, we helped our team members connect with our purpose and empowered them to advance health equity through the work we do with our partners to increase access to healthcare and accelerate patient outcomes.
Our global approach to DEI
To drive substantive progress, our DEI team led many initiatives throughout the year, working closely with our DEI Global Council to guide our strategy and activate it across our enterprise. Together, they focused on our four DEI pillars.
Leveraging benchmarks of availability for representation
Building a global culture of inclusion
Increasing access to healthcare and advancing health equity
Sharing the results of our work with full transparency
