Our most recently filed U.S. Federal Employment Information Report (EEO-1) is available for download. The data in the consolidated EEO-1 report is based on BD’s population in the U.S. in December 2021 and reflects BD’s U.S. workforce as of that time. The EEO-1 report requires that we categorize employees into ten broad EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Job Categories. These categories do not necessarily match the job levels in which BD organizes its workforce and evaluates its diversity and inclusion data. Thus, meaningful comparisons between EEO-1 Report data and other descriptions of BD’s diversity statistics and disclosures may not be possible.
