At GE Healthcare, diversity is about competitiveness and culture, and it is about creating a workplace where employees can be themselves and bring their best to work. To get the best ideas, GE Healthcare recognizes the need for a culture of openness and inclusion, a culture where employees can be who they are without having to downplay or hide certain aspects of themselves. As a global company, GE Healthcare wants to attract the best talent, which includes diversity of thought, experience, and skill, and people from different cultures and backgrounds—people who feel that their ideas will be heard and they can reach their full potential at the company.
GE Healthcare has implemented a number of diversity initiatives in South Asia, including an internship, W-EDGE (Women with an Edge), WILL (Women Initiative on Leading & Learning), a mentoring program, and WISE (Women in Science and Engineering), XLP (Accelerated Leadership Program), and GE Girls.
