KENILWORTH, N.J., March 9, 2018 /3BL Media/ -- The National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) named Merck as one of its 2018 NAFE Top Companies for Executive Women. The award recognizes U.S. corporations where women have significant clout to make the decisions that affect their company’s future and its bottom line. The NAFE Top 70 Companies are featured in the April/May issue of Working Mother.

Throughout Merck’s 125-year history, women have helped advance the company’s mission to improve human and animal health while advancing scientific research. We’re committed to developing, promoting and retaining female executives, as one of the ways we support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 5 focused on gender equality.

Merck promotes and values diversity and inclusion at every level of the organization — starting with the Office of the CEO — and strives for inclusiveness in every aspect of work. Learn more about Global Diversity & Inclusion at Merck in our Corporate Responsibility Report.
