The intersection of health, economic and racial justice crises over the last year have brought new urgency to companies’ diversity and inclusion efforts. Industry leaders like Merck have long known that diversity is good for business and have embraced D&I as core to their success. From a focus on recruiting diverse talent to equal pay initiatives, supportive benefits for all and a culture of inclusion, organizations are taking a holistic approach to D&I.
However, caregiving is an issue that threatens companies’ progress toward a diverse, equitable workforce. While 1 in 5 adults provide unpaid care to a family member or loved one, the impact is disproportionately felt by marginalized groups. Companies like Merck recognize that supporting caregivers is vital to a productive workforce where all employees can reach their fullest potential.
Join this session to learn more about the link between diversity, inclusion and caregiving, and see how Merck is leveraging a caregiver support solution as part of their global D&I strategy.
