Date:7/28/2011

BOSTON, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS), the nation's largest pharmacy health care provider, will welcome thousands of delegates to the 2011 National Urban League Conference as a title sponsor of the event that is taking place in Boston this week.

"We are excited to partner with the National Urban League and to support this important event," said Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO of CVS Caremark.  

"Like the Urban League, we value diversity and share a common belief in the importance of revitalizing local communities and creating a more diverse workforce," Merlo added.  "That's why we are exploring a deeper partnership with the Urban League that will leverage their grassroots reach into multi-cultural communities with the goal of helping people build prosperous careers."

CVS Caremark focuses its diversity strategy on a number of objectives including reflecting the marketplaces it serves, and leveraging workplace relationships by creating and sustaining an environment of inclusion. The Company also creates workplace policies, practices and programs that enable all colleagues to perform at their highest potential and ensure alignment with and engagement of all key external customers, clients, communities and constituents.

"Employers know what skills they want in their workforces, but they often lack full access to communities where they can identify and foster the talent they need for today and tomorrow," said David Casey, Vice President of Workforce Strategies and Chief Diversity Officer at CVS Caremark. "A big part of the role of corporate talent acquisition is to deliver the right people in the right roles at the right time in the right places.  Given the rapidly changing dynamics of the communities from which we draw talent, diversity has to be top of mind for any company that wants to remain relevant and competitive."

During the NUL Conference, CVS Caremark will also participate in the Career Expo and will have a booth at the Exhibition Hall where conference-goers can have free health screenings and consultations with pharmacists and nurse practitioners, get free make-overs and receive free samples of CVS/pharmacy-branded products.
