DUBLIN, Ohio, March 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- With conversations around gender equity in the workplace continuing across the country, Cardinal Health emphasized the company's ongoing commitment to promoting and supporting the advancement of women in the workplace. In conjunction with Women's History Month, Cardinal Health Chief Executive Officer Mike Kaufmann provided comments around this topic at a private event at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC on March 15:

"As a leader who is passionate about the issue of gender equity, I believe that by ensuring all our employees can bring 100 percent of their authentic selves to work by fostering both a diverse and inclusive workplace, we can differentiate ourselves in the marketplace," said Kaufmann. "At Cardinal Health, we want to be able to attract and retain the best people to be part of our global team, which is just one reason why I am dedicated to educating male and female leaders about the importance of gender equity."

Cardinal Health is proud of the work that the company is doing to support gender equity initiatives:

The company hosted a session at its headquarters in Dublin with a number of couples addressing issues around juggling home life with successful independent careers under the title, "Successful Partnerships: How to 'Make it Work' at Work and at Home."

As part of its Women in Pharmacy initiative, Cardinal Health hosted a Leadership Development Forum, sharing entrepreneurial insight from female pharmacy leaders and independent pharmacy owners, at the APhA Annual Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
