Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council
Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council is made up of representatives from across the business, from HR to client services. They lead and support our seven DEI pillars: Gender, Mental Health, Disability, Ethnicity, Religion, LGBTQ+ and Parents & Carers. Our programme has grown from humble beginnings of just a handful of passionate employees finding time in their busy schedules to talk about the issues that mattered to them. What began as one pillar steadily grew over several years to a collection of connected business resource groups, each with their own goals and focus areas. The DEI Council sets the overarching vision for these efforts and helps to define our future direction. They connect Merkle with like-minded groups within our parent company, Dentsu, both in EMEA and across the globe.
