Diversity, equity, and inclusion A message from the president and CEO
At Independence Blue Cross, we are passionate about our mission to enhance the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. People are truly at the heart of our business. And the diversity of our workforce is one of our core strengths.
That is why we’re committed to attracting and sustaining a talented workforce that reflects the communities where we live and work. We value the contributions of our talented people and support their varied backgrounds and viewpoints. In fact, it is their diverse perspectives that help us design unique solutions for our members.
Another essential way we support diversity, equity, and inclusion is through our work with suppliers, whom we rely on to help us serve our members. Having a strong supplier diversity program in place enables us to meet the needs of our business effectively. We actively cultivate and value our relationships with businesses owned by people of color, veterans, women, and the LGBTQ community.
I encourage you to explore this site and learn more about our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that by embracing the diversity of our customers, our community, and our associates, we can encourage the kind of open dialogue and creative problem-solving that leads to true health care innovation.
