It starts at the top
Our dedication to diversity and inclusion can be seen at every touchpoint.
"My vision for Edwards includes a culture that actively and consistently values diversity, and encourages diverse perspectives as well as new ways of thinking and behaving."
As one of Orange County's largest employers, we support local organizations that help minority students prosper. Our campus in Irvine often serves as a meeting location for organizations such as 100 Black Men of Orange County and Girls Inc. of Orange County.
Diversity and inclusion performance
We report annually on our diversity and inclusion performance in our Sustainability Report. We engage in dialogue and transparency with our stakeholders to act as trusted partners and be accountable for our environmental, social and governance performance.Read more
Greenlight a vet
Employees are invited to join us in the GreenLight A Vet movement, which seeks to rally national support for our veterans by encouraging everyone to change one light to green in a visible location, and to keep it glowing as a symbol of appreciation. Edwards U.S. facilities will keep a green light on and we hope you will do the same at home.
Through our actions, we will become trusted partners with customers, colleagues, and patients — creating a community unified in its mission to improve the quality of life around the world.
