National Society of Black Engineers

“For more than a century we’ve been inventing for life; and we recognize how important diversity and inclusion are to our success.  We have a long history partnering with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and have been fortunate to have NSBE scholars become part of our team.  As we prepare for #NSBE46, we’re excited at the opportunity to identify the next wave of changemakers who are transcending boundaries, reshaping the business landscape and who will also help us on our mission". 

– Celeste Warren, Vice President - Global Diversity & Inclusion Center of Excellence

NSBE Testimonials

I’m happy to bring both my NSBE insight and Merck experiences to this recruiting team, and I’m excited to be part of the team that will make a lasting impression on the next generation of engineers – just like it did for my cohort a decade ago.

Being an active NSBE member in college provided opportunities to build life-long relationships and solidified my decision to pursue an Engineering career. This year marks the 21st anniversary of my NSBE-Merck connection!

I am eternally grateful for the lessons, relationships, and access NSBE has provided for me and am “2-Hype” to recruit at the Annual Convention to match great NSBE talent with Merck opportunities.
