Our dedication to diversity and inclusion can be seen at every touchpoint.

Proud GTSBE sponsor
We're proud to support a variety of university and professional organizations. Kayla Broughton, a 4th year student majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech spoke at a recent GTSBE campus event sponsored by Edwards Lifesciences.
The UK team are proud to support local charities, here are some examples of the charities we have worked with.
A number of Edwards UK staff volunteered at a local Baptist Church to help the local charity “West Berkshire Action for Refugees”. Along with other volunteers, the team accepted and packed up doanations for the Kos and Calais Refugee camps. We also brought cakes to raise funding for the charity.
We completed a walking challenge and donated £4,500 to When You Wish Upon A Star. When You Wish Upon a Star grants the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. Our donation will pay for 5 very poorly children, and their guardians, to experience the Christmas magic of Lapland. Each December the charity enables hundreds of children to swap hospital beds for sleigh rides and visit Father Christmas in Lapland.
