Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We strive to create an environment where everyone feels valued, welcome, heard, respected, and can bring their authentic selves to work.

Our Mission

At Merkle, we recognize that an environment comprised of people from diverse backgrounds improves our business and communities. We are working to foster a culture that welcomes and values everyone — regardless of differences in thought, ability, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or religion.  

We are leading a cultural and structural transformation that enables us to thrive as a leader in our fast-paced industry. Our commitment to an inclusive work culture is supported by business-leader ownership, attracting and retaining employees from diverse backgrounds, and efforts to advance equity in our local communities. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion is at the heart of our quest to challenge and define industry-leading solutions and to be a great place to work.
