Merck

We aspire to be the premier research-intensive biopharmaceutical company in the world. For more than 125 years, Merck (known as MSD outside of the U.S. and Canada) has been inventing for life, bringing forward medicines and vaccines for many of the world’s most challenging diseases in pursuit of our mission to save and improve lives.

We demonstrate our commitment to patients and population health by increasing access to health care through far-reaching policies, programs and partnerships.

Today, we continue to be at the forefront of research to prevent and treat diseases that threaten people and animals – including cancer, infectious diseases, such as HIV and Ebola, and emerging animal diseases.
 

AT&T

As the first truly modern media company, AT&T has been changing the way people live, work and play for the past 144 years. It started with Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone. Since then, our legacy of innovation has included the invention of the transistor – the building block of today’s digital world – as well as the solar cell, the communications satellite and machine learning.

Throughout its history, AT&T has reinvented itself time and time again – most recently adding WarnerMedia to reshape the world of technology, media and telecommunications. Our two companies are no strangers to making history together. In the 1920s, AT&T built the technology to add sound to motion pictures, which Warner Bros. then used to create the first talking picture.

For nearly 100 years, WarnerMedia and its family of companies have redefined how audiences around the world consume media and entertainment. It launched the first premium network in HBO and introduced the world’s first 24-hour all-news network in CNN. WarnerMedia continues to deliver popular content to global audiences from a diverse array of talented storytellers and journalists.
 

Cognizant U.S. Foundation

The Cognizant U.S. Foundation invests in initiatives that prepare individuals for the 21st century workforce—that is why we prioritize partnering with those working to modernize our education and workforce systems, create pathways into technology careers and build accessible talent pipelines. Nearly two-thirds of all new jobs created in the U.S. over the past ten years have required either high- or medium-level digital skills—we know that the key to economic mobility is not only having access to a quality job, but also the education, skills training and support networks necessary to succeed in that job.
