Baxter Proud

Celebrating 7 Years as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality

Baxter once again earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) – and the distinction of being named a 2022 Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality. We asked members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community at Baxter what this long-standing recognition means to them.

I’m very proud of the hard work we’ve done through our Baxter Equality Network business resource group, which has led to Baxter being named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality for so many years. For me, I feel safe knowing that being gay won’t affect the way I’m treated at work. Unfortunately, it’s never a given that LGBTQ+ individuals will be fully accepted by their employer and co-workers, but at Baxter, I always feel accepted, heard, and appreciated.

I’m delighted to work for a company that truly weaves inclusion and diversity into its culture and values. As an ally to the community, I see it as my role to amplify LGBTQ+ voices and help ensure Baxter’s policies and practices are equitable for my colleagues and their loved ones. The work we do in this space helps make it a more accepting world for all our LGBTQ+ friends and family members.

Creativity and ingenuity cannot exist in an environment that stifles authenticity. Prior to Baxter’s acquisition of Hillrom, I was heavily involved with Hillrom's Pride Partnership employee resource group and plan to continue that work at Baxter. Knowing Baxter has been named a Best Place to work for LGBTQ+ Equality is a clear signal that I can feel comfortable bringing my authentic self to work.
