Independence Health Group
America’s diversity is one of its strengths. The project of creating this nation depends on acknowledging a wide range of ideas, experiences, and perspectives.
Now more than ever, we must draw on that strength — and reflect on how to ensure that the rights promised by America are equally enjoyed by the full breadth of its citizens. This goes for health care in the time of COVID-19, for justice in a time of societal reckoning on the issue of race, and for economic security in a time of recovery.
At Independence Health Group, we rely on the power of diversity to build a strong and vibrant workforce, create effective health care solutions for all our members, and attract and serve a broad base of customers. Diversity and inclusion is at the foundation of how we operate.
From our board, CEO, and senior leadership to the 10,000 associates we employ, we embrace, nurture, and celebrate our differences through volunteer projects, employee resource groups, activities, and clubs.
We also encourage new products, ideas, services, and solutions through our well-established supplier diversity program. In 2019, that program achieved record spending levels with diverse suppliers — businesses owned by African Americans and other people of color, veterans, women, and the LGBTQ community.
I’m proud to help ensure that our business relationships reflect the diversity of the community in which we live and work. And I’m also proud to have a leadership role at a company that I know is committed to the fight for equity and justice in America.
