Progress: Established three partnerships focused on:

1. Providing training to Johnson & Johnson employees who travel overseas for business to explain how to spot and report potential instances of human trafficking.

2. Linking performance on diversity metrics to business awards in select contracts, including Tier 2 procurement from minority suppliers.

3. Engaging in the End Workplace TB (EWTB) initiative and promoting TB visibility.

Supply chain organizations are poised to drive meaningful growth for their companies as they improve digital capabilities across operations, enhance resilience to respond nimbly to inevitable challenges and build full transparency into all aspects of the supply chain. At Johnson & Johnson, we invest in these capabilities across our complex supply network.
