About Lilly

Lilly is a global healthcare leader that unites caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We were founded more than a century ago by a man committed to creating high-quality medicines that meet real needs, and today we remain true to that mission in all our work. Across the globe, Lilly employees work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to communities through philanthropy and volunteerism.

Improve Lives and Communities

Beyond our medicines, we positively impact society through our work to improve lives and communities around the world. We invest our time, expertise, and resources to drive social impact. We encourage our employees to volunteer and give in ways that advance our purpose and are meaningful to them. We also engage in targeted social issues that affect our business and employees, with an emphasis on health, racial justice, and education. Starting in our headquarters’ hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, we focus on action and advocacy that build stronger communities where people – and companies like Lilly – can prosper and thrive.
