1890- Into the early 20th century, as the company rapidly grew, so did the roles of women employees. They took on new leadership positions and carved out their own spaces for professional growth at a time when opportunities for women were extremely limited.
1907 - A group of female Johnson & Johnson employees launched the Laurel Club to create a space for professional development, wellness, and community service.
1908 -While some women became supervisors, others took office jobs and research positions. Among them was trained chemist Edith von Kuster, who, in 1908, became the company’s first woman scientist. She worked under the leadership of Scientific Director Fred Kilmer.
1910 - And by the early 1910s, women led a quarter of Johnson & Johnson’s departments.
Today, the company provides a minimum of eight weeks of parental leave for mothers and fathers across the world.
