The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world. Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.
At the beginning of March BD kicked off International Women’s Day (IWD) events and activities at our sites around the world.
Balance is not just a women’s issue; it’s a business issue.
BD associates will be invited to become actively involved in learning about and promoting gender inclusion and diversity during our International Women’s Day celebrations.
IWD is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while also tenaciously challenging bias. At BD, we are proud to be a 2019 IWD supporter. We believe that becoming a more gender inclusive and diverse company is crucial to achieving our vision of driving innovation, better understanding patient and customer needs and making BD the best place for talented women to work.
Be Inclusive, Be Human, Be Yourself – I&D Award
Reinforcing BD’s continued focus on promoting inclusion and diversity in the workplace, BD France has created an I&D Award to recognize associates who illustrate what “living together in harmony” stands for in the company.
The I&D Leadership Committee received 12 nominations of local associates who represent well BD’s I&D philosophy and shortlisted 4 of them. After reviewing the finalists’ contributions to promote inclusion and diversity in the workplace the winner was selected and announced in an event that took place in December 2018.

– Vince Forlenza, CEO
I have been working at BD full-time
The organization I am in was recently acquired by BD. So far it has been the most transparent integration I've been associated with.
Recent Corporate management changes indicate they are living up to their claimed goal of assessing best practices between the legacy organizations and incorporating those that position the organization for the greatest growth.
Too much time is spent, by too many people, in meetings. Sooner or later this will have a negative impact on our productivity.
Advice to Management
As the organization continues to grow, enable senior management to push more "low to moderate risk" decision making authority down to the appropriate subject matter expert levels.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in June 2018.
This was a 4-weeks process. First an HR phone screen, followed by face to face interview with the line manager and a team member. The last step was a group interview with some members from a specialist department and again the line manager and the team member. During the whole process I felt very welcomed. I got all the the information regarding the position. We had a good discussion and the chance to speak very frankly. After the last interview, I was quickly accepted.
