Diversity and Inclusion

Stericycle’s success is a result of the diverse talent and leadership across our entire team. As part of our commitment to protect what matters, we cultivate an inclusive culture where our team members feel welcome, valued, and heard. 

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Stericycle embraces a culture of belonging, where diverse perspectives and experiences are encouraged, supported, and celebrated. A diverse workplace fuels our innovation and enhances our connection to our customers and the communities we serve. In 2022, Stericycle was recognized by 50/50 Women on BoardsTM as a “3+” company for having three or more women on its corporate board of directors.

We have implemented several measures to promote diversity and inclusion across the company, including:

  • Fostering employee resource groups made up of diverse populations that are regularly consulted for perspective
  • Conducting frequent team member training programs and communications on diversity topics
  • Prioritizing recruitment, hiring, and development of team members who have diverse backgrounds and unique experiences

Our Employee Resource Groups

Stericycle’s employee resource groups (ERGs) are team member-led networks organized around a shared identity and/or interest. The ERGs play a key role in Stericycle's Diversity and Inclusion initiatives by directly supporting our efforts to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and cultivating inclusive work environments through authentic connections. Additionally, the ERGs provide opportunities for community engagement, as well as develop and lead activities that promote cultural awareness and education. We currently have seven employee resource groups:

  • Blacks Unify Inclusion Leadership and Diversity (BUILD): BUILD aims to create a positive and inclusive environment for Black employees with the goal of creating a pathway to Black leadership through training and open dialogue.
  • Latinx Empowerment with Allied Leadership (LEAL): LEAL focuses on providing professional development resources for Stericycle's Latino/a/x community and promoting inclusivity and cultural awareness throughout Stericycle.
  • Freedom for Individual Expression, Respecting Colleagues and Equality (FIERCE): FIERCE promotes an inclusive culture for LGBTQ+ team members, providing support and resources for Stericycle's LGBTQ+ community and encouraging ally partnership and education.
  • SEEDS Young Professionals: SEEDS' mission is to foster the personal and professional growth of Stericycle's young professionals, cultivating a sense of community and building bridges across generations.
  • Stericycle Talent and Ability Resource Group (STAR): STAR helps raise awareness and create global opportunity by improving inclusive hiring efforts and reducing unconscious bias towards individuals with disabilities, both visible and invisible.
  • Veterans: Our Veterans group is dedicated to recognizing, appreciating and supporting Stericycle’s veterans, military members, their families, and the communities in which they live and work.
  • Women’s Resource for Impact, Success, and Empowerment (WRISE): WRISE is dedicated to empowering female team members to become advocates for their careers through mentorship, networking and professional development opportunities.
