Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Stryker

At Stryker, we are united by our mission and strengthened by our culture. We believe our diverse strengths, experiences and perspectives are essential for making healthcare better. By caring for each other, we foster a culture where everyone feels seen, heard and valued.


Our DE&I commitments


Strengthen the diversity of our workforce
Advance a culture of inclusion, engagement and belonging
Maximize the power of inclusion to drive innovation and growth



Every voice.

We believe in the power of diverse backgrounds, talents and perspectives. We want our employees to have a voice and to feel seen, heard and valued.  We measure this through engagement surveys and inclusiveness index.

Every story.

Listening is key to understanding. At our annual DE&I Summit, our employees share stories and experiences that have shaped who they are—opening the door to honest conversations about our differences and what brings us together.

Every connection.

Stryker’s employee resource groups (ERGs) help promote a culture of belonging, providing support and building community among their members and allies, and helping attract and retain top talent. ERG events and communications foster connections and bring awareness to fellow employees throughout the year.

Every step.

We’re committed to making progress on our DE&I goals. Sharing our data, developing our people and processes, attracting a diverse talent pool and working with our communities are just a few of the steps we’re taking.


At Stryker, we focus on people as a core value for a reason. We care for and believe in one another. We know that whether across the ocean or across the hall, we’re united by a common mission to make healthcare better. We matter to each other, and that matters to us.


"Our DE&I commitments are rooted in our company mission and values. People are a core value and are always at the heart of what we do. Together, we are committed to advancing our DE&I journey. Together, we are stronger."

Annie Heath, Vice President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
