Celeste Warren is vice president of the Global Diversity Center of Excellence at Merck, one of the leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide. She understands what it takes to have an inclusive setting for the workforce. “You want a diverse workforce, so you have to create an inclusive environment around our employees so they’re able to feel energized, they’re able to feel empowered, so they are able to do what we want them to do,” she says. Warren is flying the flag of not only underrepresented Black communities but all diverse groups for the betterment of society. The series aims to highlight Black contributions to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)— a history that has not been widely recognized.
