Terumo Supports Gender Diversity and a Culture of Inclusion and Belonging

December 19, 2019

December 19, 2019 - Somerset, NJ - As part of its ongoing commitment of Contributing to Society through Healthcare, Terumo Medical Corporation (TMC) has recently launched a newly established, organization-wide Women's Initiative Network (WIN).

The mission of WIN is to drive gender diversity throughout the the company, as a means to spur sustainable business growth, encourage a culture of respect and inclusion, and support initiatives aimed at women's professional growth and leadership.

WIN will focus on four (4) strategic pillars:

1. Develop the company's corporate culture further to drive a collaborative, connected and inclusive organization.

2. Introduce a developmental program, which will support active learning and professional growth for TMC Associates.

3. Advocate for internal policy change, driven by focus groups.

4. Enhance organizational integration, where TMC will partner with outside organizations and industry partners to support additional women's initiatives.

While the conversations and topics focus on women in the workforce, WIN believes the events and networks offered are valuable for both women and men of Terumo as we drive a culture of inclusion, diversity and belonging.

TMC is now a proud member of Catalyst, a global nonprofit founded in 1962­ that works with many of the world's most powerful CEOs and leading companies to help build workplaces that work for women and other underrepresented groups.

"As TMC expands and grows, it has been my mission to turn our innovative forces inward to develop Associates to their highest potential - so they can achieve their professional aspirations. This enables TMC to build a culture of understanding, embrace differences in style and consider alternative profiles for success. Thriving WIN programs embrace and promote the principles of inclusion for all people. At TMC, we are guided by our Terumo Core Values, which include respect and appreciation towards all Associates and embracing initiatives such as WIN," said Jim Rushworth, President & CEO, Terumo Medical Corporation.
