Event description

Description

Ken Frazier is the Chairman and CEO of the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. He joined the company's public affairs division as general counsel in 1992, and was named senior general counsel in 1999. In 2006, Ken was promoted to executive vice president in addition to his role as general counsel, leading the company's largest group, human health. He was named president of Merck & Co. in April 2010, and became CEO and a member of the company's board of directors in 2011. He is the first African-American to lead a major pharmaceutical company.

As CEO, Frazier has directed the company to take financial risks in developing new treatments. He has said he is motivated by a desire to improve the lives of people in developing countries.

Earlier this year, Ken resigned from President Trump’s manufacturing advisory council in protest to Trump’s response to the hate crimes of radical right wing groups in Charlottesville.

This event is open to Stanford students, faculty, staff, and community. Ticket required for entry.
