Owens & Minor Believes in the Power of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Teammates are the heart of our organization. Just as our Teammates are committed to our Mission of Empowering Our Customers To Advance Healthcare®, Owens & Minor is committed to fostering an empowering work environment where every Teammate can thrive.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are critical parts of fulfilling our IDEAL Values—Integrity, Development, Excellence, Accountability, and Listening—and delivering on our Mission to our healthcare customers.
How Owens & Minor Defines Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As a Teammate at Owens & Minor, you are part of a culture that embraces and celebrates the varied backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints our Teammates bring to work. Our Teammates are empowered to help lead us on this journey that will continue to shape the future of Owens & Minor.
Teammate Resource Groups
All Teammates have the opportunity to join our Teammate Resource Groups (TRGs). Each TRG provides space, resources, and support for underrepresented identity groups to develop goals that will help propel the Teammate and the organization forward. Through ongoing events and outreach, each TRG provides unique opportunities to connect and foster community across the company. Any Teammate is welcome to join any TRG as a member or an ally.
External Views Help Broaden Our Perspectives
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion extend beyond our office, manufacturing, and distribution center walls. While we view developing, attracting, and retaining diverse talents as a key to our overall success, we also know that those talents need to view Owens & Minor as a place they can develop and grow their careers. That is why we seek additional viewpoints, thought leadership, and experiences through partnerships in our communities.
Military and Veteran Support
Owens & Minor is proud of our active-duty military and veteran Teammates. We partner with multiple military and veteran organizations to further support the service-members in our company and our communities.
We actively partner with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Our connection with the HBCU career centers and student bodies through networking events, career development workshops, alumni networking, and internship and career fairs helps ensure opportunities with Owens & Minor are visible to students and alumni.
