Events Celebrating Our Unique Attributes

Each year, Perrigo hosts events across the globe to promote an inclusive culture. Below highlights some of the key events held to engage Perrigo employees and leaders.

International Womens's Day

Focus on Women

Our Leadership Lens: Focus on Women events are part of our global initiative featuring topics designed to inform, inspire, and grow our female talent.

Perrigo understands that a healthy company means investing in its diverse talent. Half of our global workforce are women, an area which leadership is passionate about developing.

As part of our Focus on Women initiative, Perrigo's International Women’s Day brought together women and men from across the globe and received resounding positive feedback.

Disability Awareness

Perrigo works to foster a compassionate and inclusive work environment for individuals that are differently abled. As part of this work, Perrigo recognized National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities, while educating the organization about the strengths they bring to the workplace.  

Informational sessions gave employees the opportunity to become aware of the role we all play in fostering a supportive work culture for people with disabilities. 

Guests were invited to share their stories and unique perspectives with Perrigo employees. Additionally, managers were offered an opportunity to participate in interactive sessions that increase understanding and compassion in the workplace.

Veterans Day

Veterans Day

Veterans are a vital part of our workforce and their service and traditions are recognized and supported through veteran's organizations within the company.

Perrigo Michigan holds an annual Veterans Day event where a flag raising ceremony is performed by veterans across the company.

The event also brings together members of several branches as a networking experience to share how their service applies to the workplace, and provides a gathering place for service members to come together. 

Pride Week

Pride Week celebrates the LGBTQ+ community within Perrigo and promotes an accepting environment globally. Perrigo's Dublin location is leading the way by hosting events to demonstrate support for local and global employees who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. 

The Dublin office hosts speakers, events, and advocates to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people across Ireland. The team also takes a 'Pride Stride' through the city, and holds a celebration at the office.

These efforts not only represent the supportive internal culture Perrigo is building, but also demonstrates the values in which we engage with our consumers and customers.

Diversity includes everyone. Together, we can make self-care better. Together, we can create an even stronger, more creative, and innovative Perrigo.”
