Honoring and Celebrating Black History Month

Nestlé Health Science Proudly Recognizes Black Achievements and Promotes Inclusiveness for a Diverse Future


Every February, National Black History Month serves as a powerful tribute to the immeasurable contributions of African Americans and all populations of Black people to the United States, acknowledging their pivotal role in shaping the nation's rich and diverse history. At Nestlé Health Science, we are proud to continuously promote achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent. 

As a demonstration of our unwavering commitment to fostering inclusivity, Nestlé Health Science established a grant in 2020 to provide scholarship funds exceptional to Black students currently pursuing a bachelor's degree from the Howard University School of Business. Watch the inspiring testimonials from these talented individuals.

"We are proud to celebrate Black History Month at Nestlé Health Science, recognizing the invaluable contributions of African Americans and global Black diaspora to our society,” said Laurel Catlett-King, Vice President, Head of Human Resources at Nestlé Health Science. “This month, we honor the achievements of Black individuals who have broken barriers, shattered stereotypes, and paved the way for a more inclusive and diverse future. Together, let us continue to learn, inspire, and uplift one another as we work towards a more equitable and inclusive world." 

Throughout the month, our Black Employee Network will host a series of events and promote community volunteer opportunities for employees, all designed to advance diversity, inclusion, and meaningful connections. These initiatives provide invaluable chances for learning, sharing experiences, and building bridges within our communities.  

Additionally, we are proud to announce that employee donations to select charities, such as National Urban League and Otis Redding Foundation, will be generously matched by the Nestlé Health Science Foundation.  

Together, we can honor the contributions and achievements of the various populations and cultures of Black people, promote inclusiveness, and continue to build a more diverse and equitable future.
