Expect gender diversity Your contributions are vital. Working together, talented women and men like you influence the innovative health technologies and solutions that make a positive and very visible impact on billions of people every year.  

We know that gender diversity is as important to you as it is to us. And we recognize that we’re not as diverse as we want to be. That’s why we continue to strengthen our focus on diversity and inclusion. With a firm commitment to championing equality across all levels in our organization, these policies and practices will become inherent to our company culture.  

As an employee with us, you deserve equal representation across Philips, and we’re working hard to make that a reality. 
We put in a lot of work to create a safe and engaging place to work, where people can be themselves and be at their best. Because when people feel safe and respected, they become more engaged, more inclined to innovate and go the extra mile.”​​​​​​​
