A message from CEO David B. Whitehead

As the United States and world demonstrate against the horrific treatment and death of George Floyd and the systemic racial injustice endured throughout the years by the black community, it highlights our responsibility to provide equality, opportunity, and respect to all people.

As the United States and world demonstrate against the horrific treatment and death of George Floyd and the systemic racial injustice endured throughout the years by the black community, it highlights our responsibility to provide equality, opportunity, and respect to all people.

At Merck Sharp & Dohme Federal Credit Union, our Board and management have zero-tolerance for racism in any form and the same stands in our workplace and in the treatment of our membership.  We have and will continue to be committed to maintaining a diversified workplace where racism and discrimination are not accepted. This is an obligation we take seriously.

People helping People - the credit union philosophy, asks us more now than ever to pick up the mantle and speak out against the injustices to black lives. But speech alone is not enough. It is equally important that we listen to those who experience racism and discrimination. We must acknowledge, learn from, and unite together with them if we are to create an equal and inclusive tomorrow.

Working together, we must not tolerate racism and discrimination and work toward building lasting harmony.
