This month, we join our Black/African American-focused Employee Resource Group, ASPIRE, in celebration of Black History Month. ASPIRE has chosen “Moving from Conversation to Action” as this year’s Black History Month theme in effort to move beyond conversations that evolved around the social injustice events in 2020 and take action with a goal to provide meaningful change in our communities. We look forward to taking part in activities and virtual events all month-long in celebration of leaders and change makers moving the needle forward in excellence.
At McKesson, we believe the simple yet fundamental idea that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity is more than just smart business – it’s the inherently right thing to do. We’re honored to be recognized once again as one of the #BestPlacestoWork for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
