Her Promise, Our Purpose
Our purpose is to help women and girls achieve their promise through better health and is inextricably linked to our company vision: to create a better and healthier every day for every woman around the world. By addressing gender-related disparities in health, we build a more sustainable future for women, families, economies and society. Our environmental, social and governance goals focus on three areas: Her Equity, Her Planet, and Her Trust, and the issues that matter most to our stakeholders, our business, and most importantly, women around the world.
Throughout the world, women have vast unmet medical needs. Our goal is to redefine and harness innovation to help women and girls achieve their promise and lead healthier, more empowered lives.
Women are disproportionately affected by the impact of climate change. They are also more vulnerable to resource scarcity, which is why a healthy planet is important to helping women and girls achieve their promise.
To fulfill her promise, we are working to promote balanced gender representation at all levels. We aim to reflect the gender equity within our company that we want to see in the world.
Her Plan is Her Power.
Around the world, unplanned pregnancies are preventing women and girls from achieving their promise. We want to change that.
Organon’s multi-year global initiative “Her Plan is Her Power” includes a portfolio of programs, collaborations and investments to address inequities in access to contraception and ensure that women and girls have the power to plan their future.
