Self-identification is an opportunity for employees to voluntarily provide information about diversity dimensions, such as their gender, race and disability status. Capturing accurate demographic data helps us continue our efforts to create an inclusive culture in which employees feel that they belong. Self-identifying enables J&J to better meet the needs of our employees and measure our progress in achieving a more diverse workforce. Additionally, J&J is a federal contractor with the U.S. Federal Government, and surveying employees ensures that we comply with government obligations.

Our global expansion of Self-ID consists of a standardized approach to aggregating and securing protected information, while also respecting regional, cultural, regulatory and legal conditions of each country. As of 2023, we now have Self-ID in seven countries and are planning further expansion in 2024.
