Last week, Johnson & Johnson Chairman and CEO Bill Weldon and other senior leaders participated in meetings at the United Nations and Clinton Global Initiative designed to address some of the world’s most complicated issues that are too large and complex for any one single entity to solve, ranging from poverty to hunger to global health. Johnson & Johnson has been working with the UN on these goals since we responded to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s call to action last year, and this year we reported on our significant progress against those commitments.
Today, our Chairman and CEO Bill Weldon shared the following letter with all Johnson & Johnson employees worldwide. I wanted to share with you what he wrote:
To: The Employees of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies
Last week, members of our Executive Committee and others at Johnson & Johnson joined meetings at the United Nations and Clinton Global Initiative, where some of the world’s toughest global health problems were discussed.
Listening to plans for improving health around the world and reporting on our Company’s commitments to this goal really drove home for me the role we play as a global health care company and the difference all of you make in so many people’s lives.
