Empowering young leaders across the globe to change the trajectory of health for humanity

Investing in young leaders to create a meaningful impact to society

At Johnson & Johnson, we are committed to building leadership capacity in the health and care giving arena and empowering young leaders both within our organization and in the outside world, to change the trajectory of health for humanity.

In 2018, 76 J&J OYW delegates participated in the J&J OYW program and attended the OYW Summit in The Hague, The Netherlands in October. This was our largest J&J OYW delegation to date and included 12 external scholars from the J&J OYW Scholarship program.

The Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarship Program

The Johnson & Johnson OYW Scholarship Program was launched in 2017 to help build external health leadership capacity with eight scholarships offered to global young leaders working on the front lines of delivering care.

This year, the program was significantly scaled to offer 12 global scholarships. Over 4700 applications were received for the 2018 scholarships with the 12 scholar recipients selected by One Young World.

As well as participating in the OYW program, all scholar recipients receive individual coaching by senior Johnson & Johnson executive leaders to further develop their aspirations, strategy and initiatives.

Scholarships are essential to making each One Young World Summit accessible to the world’s finest young leaders, and not just those of the global north. This is so important to us, not least because these delegates are making an impact in the world’s most vulnerable societies, but because of the invaluable lessons impart to the One Young World delegation as a whole. By supporting delegates to attend One Young World, Johnson & Johnson has made abundantly clear its outstanding commitment to the young doctors, nurses, midwives and caregivers who are leading change for a healthier future the world over.
