Merck And Her Campus Ask College-Aged Women To Take The Pledge To Plan It Forward For Their Futures By Evaluating How Today's Decisions Can Affect Tomorrow

Stocks in this article: MRK

"I am so fortunate that every day I can wake up and do what I love," said Tammy Tibbetts, founder and president of She's the First.  "Although I could have never predicted even five years ago being where I am today, higher education was always a part of my plan and I have devoted my career to helping young women gain access to education.  When girls have a solid plan in place with a good foundation, they can dream big and take small steps each day to unlock their unlimited potential."

Merck encourages all women to kick-start a plan for their future at the Plan It Forward section of HerCampus.com, and to ask themselves if their plan includes starting a family.  At HerCampus.com, young women can find resources like the Course Creator, which helps them navigate the planning process and consider potential obstacles, next steps, and deadlines.  Accompanied by a worksheet to help craft their personal roadmap, young women can leave the site with a better idea of how to chart their course.

Women can learn more about the Pledge and the Plan It Forward campaign by visiting: www.HerCampus.com/PlanItForward.

Survey Methodology

The survey was conducted online within the United States by GfK on behalf of Merck from September 22October 6, 2011 among 700 women aged 18-25.
