Medline’s third annual Pink Glove Photo Competition, supporting breast cancer awareness and funding, just wrapped up last week. In this competition, we invite healthcare workers to take creative pictures of themselves wearing our pink gloves, which are posted on Facebook for voting. The ‘likes’ have been tallied, and, out of 50 beautiful submissions, we are pleased to announce this year’s three winners:
- 1st place: Italy, Asur 4 Senigallia
- 2nd place: France, Un esprit sein, dans un corps sain
- 3rd place: Spain, Diana Marcilla Hernández, en representación del Bloque Quirúrgico General del Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra.
The winners receive donations in their names to breast cancer charities or organisations of their choice. In addition, we are pleased to report that all three winners have been mentioned individually in the local press in Italy, France and Spain, respectively. Congratulations and thank you for your contributions to breast cancer awareness.
Medline is pleased to announce the release of its new Diversity and Inclusion Statement. It has always been Medline’s policy to afford equal employment opportunities, but this statement takes it a step further. It recognises that a diverse workforce allows the company to draw on different perspectives to enhance decision-making, innovation, and product and service quality. Additionally, the statement sets goals for the next four years to further embed a commitment to diversity and inclusion in Medline’s recruitment activities, internal promotions, remuneration and reward system, training and development opportunities, and in its overall organisational culture. Summed up best by Medline’s VP of HR & CSR Violaine Bléjan, ‘Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is about caring for your colleagues as individuals—accepting and respecting the ways in which they differ from you, whatever that may be, and making these differences an asset in your mutual cooperation.’
