EMPLOYEE DIVERSITY

How do we innovate?

We innovate through the diversity of our teams and the power of inclusion.


Our Global Diversity and Inclusion Center of Excellence oversees diversity and inclusion in all of our business practices.

We have more than 10,000 global members of Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs) who help to drive employee engagement and achieve powerful business results.

EBRGs are employee volunteer groups of diverse constituencies that support talent acquisition, share business insights, and enhance the company’s reputation as employer of choice. They provide leadership development, networking forums and mentoring opportunities for Merck employees.

We have ten EBRGs at Merck:

  • League of Employees of African Descent (LEAD)
  • Asia Pacific Association (APA)
  • Merck capAbility Network
  • Merck Hispanos Organization (MHO)
  • Merck Interfaith Organization (MIO)
  • Merck Rainbow Alliance (MRA)
  • Next Gen Network (NGN)
  • Native American & Global Indigenous People
  • Veterans Leadership Network (VLN)
  • Merck Women’s Network (MWN)
