Many Bayer sites feature employee networking organizations/affinity groups and other opportunities to provide a forum for Bayer employees to share experiences, build collaborative, rewarding relationships, and serve as a vehicle for personal development. In addition, these groups work to improve our operations within both the organization and the communities in which we serve. ACCESS (African American), WLI (Women's Leadership Initiative) and LINKS (New Professionals) are three examples of successful groups.
Bayer’s anti-discrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) policies incorporate sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression to provide a safe and inclusive work environment. In its equality index rating evaluating employers on their programs and policies for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) annually recognizes Bayer’s notable efforts and results.
