"Diversity reflects who we are as a society and here at CareFirst. It is the source of our strength when harnessed to our mission. It is the unique contribution of each of us to the higher purpose [that propels us forward]. It is in this insight – in all working together – that we see in our diversity the common spirit of one community and one company that binds us all together."
– Chet Burrell, Former President and CEO
