We believe that healthcare professionals with a range of experiences and backgrounds are better able to understand the needs of and engage effectively with patients. Equally, we are confident that an inclusive approach to encouraging students and scholars in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and medical fields will expand the range of skills available in the healthcare-related professions and build a pipeline of potential recruits for our company. We advance several initiatives both to encourage the uptake of STEM studies and medical professions, and to increase access to opportunities at J&J and in our industry.

Launched in 2023, our STEM Scholars Program in the UK aims to bridge the career development diversity gap in the UK, specifically for Black individuals. The program aims to break down barriers and create access to careers in STEM and life sciences for high-potential scholars. In August, 23 students graduated from Phase One and, in September, we invited ten students to the London Center in partnership with the Aleto Foundation to launch Phase Two of the program.
