Diversity and inclusion A message from the president and CEO
At Independence Blue Cross, we are passionate about our Mission: Enhancing the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. People are truly at the heart of our business. As a company that is committed to changing the game, we understand that we need to think broadly and be open to diverse ideas, experiences, and perspectives to transform the delivery of health care.
That is why we’re committed to attracting and sustaining a talented workforce that reflects the diversity of the community where we live and work. As people with purpose, we respect the diversity of our customers and believe that we can serve them most effectively by embracing diversity and inclusion within our company. Our culture is one of openness, integrity, and respect where we value the contributions of our talented people and support their varied backgrounds and viewpoints.
Another essential way we support diversity and inclusion is through our work with suppliers. Having a strong supplier diversity program in place enables us to meet the needs of our business effectively while also supporting our community. We actively cultivate and value our relationships with minority-owned and women-owned businesses.
I encourage you to learn more about our diversity and inclusion efforts on this site. We believe that by respecting the diversity of our customers, our community, and our associates, we can encourage the kind of open dialogue and creative problem-solving that lead to true health care innovation.

We can better carry out our mission when our workforce and policies reflect the diverse character of the communities we serve.
Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we build alliances with businesses that are owned by women, veterans, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ community.
