Diversity and inclusion
We are One Agilent
At Agilent, we value a passion for science, a focus on results and a commitment to a greater good. Drive, talent and experiences can vary from individual to individual, but together we have a common thread we call One Agilent.
We are dedicated to fostering a healthy work environment that inspires collaboration and innovation in a global scientific community. A space that fulfills an individual's purpose in a meaningful way. A place where everyone can achieve their potential, with a team that aims high, in a company that supports a flexible working environment with your well-being in mind.
We are committed to making Agilent a best place to work for everyone by providing a truly inclusive work experience. Together, through collaboration, as One Agilent, we are better able to deliver trusted answers to our customer’s critical questions because we know there is work to be done.
Hear from our leaders
At Agilent, we believe strongly in the power of teamwork. Our people are our strength, and we know that as One Agilent we are more creative when we have diversity of perspectives; we are more engaged when we bring diversity of experience; and we are more innovative when we encourage diversity of thought.
We are committed to creating a culture where employees have a sense of connection and belonging not only to their teams and managers, but also to the organization as a whole. We expect that leaders will personify our corporate values by building diverse teams that welcome and leverage diversity of thought and perspective while ensuring all dimensions of identity are seen and heard. Our Diversity Office has curated outstanding tools and resources for managers and employees that drive self-awareness, cultural competence, and inclusive leadership.
Diversity and inclusion are integral elements of our corporate culture. At Agilent, our mission to advance the quality of life is inherently inclusive and elemental to a shared human experience. Our diversity office seeks to improve representation at all levels. We work to nurture a culture that values and supports diverse talent and perspectives, and we provide our leaders with tools and resources that empower them to hire and retain top talent. Our intention is to continue to evolve through this work to be an equitable employer of choice.
At Agilent, we know that our success stems from the people who make amazing things happen every day. That's why our commitment to diversity and inclusion is so important. It's not only a business imperative built into our global company, it's also the right thing to do. To hire the best people and support them in realizing their full potential.

“I didn’t know about Agilent, but I’m glad that I do now. It fit me really well. Being here, knowing that what we’re doing is helping others.
Some of the skills that I found that translated great from military into Agilent have been the ability to adapt and overcome, as well as our attention to detail that we maintain here at work.”

"I came out when I was 17 and stopped completely hiding myself a few years after. I am open to friends and colleagues to talk about anything without judging. I also love to hear about other people’s experiences."
