Bio+ DEI | Bioventus Logo

Greater than the sum of our parts.

We are resolved to make Bioventus more than a good company to work for. We’re going to make Bioventus a place where each employee can feel, “I belong—I am seen and heard, accepted and valued here.” We know that in doing so, we will become a more competitive, resilient, and vibrant company.

+Our Vision

Bioventus is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive work environment for every employee.

That’s the purpose of Bio+: to recognize, embrace, and even leverage our differences. Because taken together with the values we have in common, our differences can make us stronger.

+Our Mission

Bioventus will foster a culture and identity which drives diversity, equity and inclusion as we engage and develop current employees and recruit future talent, all working together to build a transformative work environment, which promotes respect, integrity and belonging.

We aspire to be a trusted business partner, leading DE&I efforts in the medical device industry and in the local communities where we work to bring innovations for active healing to customers and patients across the globe.

+Our Impact

  • Received the distinction of “Leaders in Diversity” from the Triangle Business Journal in 2022
  • Established 8 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
  • Forged Community Partnerships
  • Engaged in Corporate Equality Index and Diversity Supplier Benchmark
  • Recognized Juneteenth as an official corporate holiday in 2023
  • Accessible DEI training for all employees
  • Formalized DEI Council and Executive Sponsors
  • Fostered HBCU Internships and Cristo-Rey Work-Study Partnerships

Shared values will bring us together.

At first glance, a DEI initiative may seem to be for specific groups of employees. In fact, this work will support all of us, no matter a person’s characteristics, including but not limited to: Age, Disability, Ethnicity, Gender, Gender identity or expression, Race, Religious beliefs and practices, or Sexual orientation.

For much of human history, belonging has been tied to sameness. At Bioventus, we are tying it to shared values instead. Adopting a set of core values as the foundation of Bio+ enables us to reflect the beliefs that we as a company share. These values will be our compass, guiding our actions, behaviors, and decision-making processes.

Our ERG Mission

We are resolved to make Bioventus more than a good company to work for. We’re going to make Bioventus a place where each employee can feel, “I belong—I am seen and heard, accepted and valued here.” We know that in doing so, we will become a more competitive, resilient, and vibrant company.

Little things add up.

DEI transformation is an inside job: every step and action each of us takes adds to our success. Our differences help us define, learn from, and celebrate each other. Harnessed together, they also give us more power to overcome limits,
unleash opportunity, and turn a good company into a great one.

76% of job seekers and employees consider diversity important when evaluating companies
and job offers.5

bWell is breaking down barriers at Bioventus!
Mental health and neurodiversity are not always easy topics to talk about. At Bioventus, however, our bWell Employee Resource Group (ERG) actively engages in these conversations.
“We want to create awareness and remove the stigma around mental health,” says Callie Rozsa, Director of Sales (US) for Restorative Therapies and bWell’s inspiring co-leader. “That starts by talking openly and honestly about these issues. Because let’s face it: Mental health and brain function influence every aspect of our lives, especially our work.”
Stay tuned for more to come as bWell continues to foster understanding, build a workplace where every voice matters, and make Bioventus a neurodiverse-friendly company.

Just wrapped up Bioventus’ Women in Leadership-hosted event, “How to be a Confident Communicator,” featuring the brilliant Karen Laos!
Karen shared invaluable insights, wisdom, and practical tips that can make a significant difference in how effectively we communicate. One of Karen’s favorite techniques: If you find yourself rambling, stop, pause, and say, “My point is...”
Thanks to everyone who joined the event. Your engagement and enthusiasm are truly inspiring!
Stay tuned, because the Women in Leadership ERG is shaping up to be an empowering force here at #Bioventus.

A river runs through Bioventus’ new employee resource group (ERG)—specifically, the Wolf River, in Tennessee.
Members of our new PLUG (Passionate Leaders United for a Greener future) ERG recently sponsored a “lunch and learn” event with the Wolf River Conservancy.
About 60 of our Memphis-based employees attended, learning about the river’s history and its importance to communities and businesses.
