Walking in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ communities of the country, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) India participated in the Queer Azaadi Mumbai (QAM) Pride March - held on February 02, 2019. The March, themed 'Pride For All' saw 15,000 people come together to spread awareness and tell their stories. J&J India's employees partaking the Pride March, came in light of the company's official launch of Open&Out - a voluntary, employee-led community that represents a global network of LGBTQ+ at J&J and allies individuals who are open-minded and out to make a difference by creating safe and inclusive workspaces, fostering healthier communities and empowering all employees.

In support of this revolutionary movement, to build a feeling of a progressive community and to make a positive difference, J&J India employees painted themselves in rainbow colours, chanted slogans of equality; and waved their pride flags to showcase the culture of diversity and inclusion at J&J India with the tagline- 'Together we care with Pride'.

Johnson & Johnson globally has 12 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), one of which is Open&Out. ERGs are voluntary, employee-led groups at J&J worldwide that focus on sharing identities/affinities and experiences, to apply these perspectives to initiatives and create value for all employees at J&J.
