About Independence Blue Cross

Workforce diversity and associate resource groups

At Independence, we can better carry out our mission if our workforce and our policies reflect the diverse character of the communities we serve. Our diverse workforce makes Independence a better and more productive place for associates to work.

As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, Independence offers several associate resource groups.
