Our Commitment to Diversity

Diversity at Work image

"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, President and CEO

CareFirst is committed to diversity and inclusion. Our mission is to provide health benefit services of value to our customers across the region. To fulfill this mission, we rely on our talented associates and their different experiences and backgrounds.

We are proud to say:

  • Women make up more than 70 percent of CareFirst’s associate population and nearly 50 percent of our associates are from an ethnic minority.
  • We have a multigenerational workforce – more than 20 percent of our associates are Millennials.
  • Over 1000 of our associates participate in Associate Resource Groups (ARGs), which are self-managed associate groups that meet to discuss and support a shared interest, such as wellness.
  • We support and assist military veterans who join the company through our Battle Buddy program.
  • We offer diversity and inclusion training to help associates and managers identify and be more aware of unconscious bias in the workplace.
