ABOUT Johnson & Johnson
The values that guide our decision making are spelled out in Our Credo. Put simply, Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first.Robert Wood Johnson, former chairman from 1932 to 1963 and a member of the Companys founding family, crafted Our Credo himself in 1943, just before JohnsonJohnson became a publicly traded company. This was long before anyone ever heard the term corporate social responsibility. Our Credo is more than just a moral compass. We believe its a recipe for business success. The fact that JohnsonJohnson is one of only a handful of companies that have flourished through more than a century of change is proof of that.
Perspectives from a Mom and Teen Daughter
By Joy Marini, MS, PA-C, Director, Corporate Contributions, Johnson & Johnson
Joy Marini, Director, Worldwide Corporate Contributions at Johnson & Johnson and her teenage daughter Kendall have signed on to Catapult this holiday season. You can join their team to support women and girls globally--or start a team of your own. You can choose from a variety of causes from girls' education, to prevention of child marriage or enabling access to food and water.
Joy: "Empowering women and girls has long been a passion of mine. I am blessed to be able to work with girls, women and mothers worldwide at Johnson & Johnson. Now that I am the mother of a daughter who is facing the rollercoaster of teenage life, my commitment to the well-being of women and girls has taken on a whole new perspective. As I understand the world of my daughter more and see how she is trying to make a difference in the world, I hope that our story will inspire others to make a difference too. You can get involved in your own community, or support organizations all over the world that are making positive changes in the lives of women and girls.
Catapult is where you can get involved in empowering women and girls. Launched in October 2012, Catapult is the first online funding site dedicated specifically to advancing gender equality, and already features 70 projects in more than 30 countries.
Catapult and Johnson & Johnson have teamed up to double your impact this giving season. Johnson & Johnson is supporting a matching gifts donation to their partners on Catapult-up to $50,000-from December 6 through January 31.
