In The Workplace

From the workforce to the workplace to the marketplace, diversity is a concept that touches every aspect of business at WellPoint. It's also a guiding principle in the relationship between our associates, partners and consumers, particularly in the communities in which we live and work.

For us, it's not about quotas or physical descriptors. We see diversity as a unique approach to solving business challenges, communicating with our various audiences and learning from our differences and similarities.

From our Board of Directors, to our thousands of talented associates, diversity plays a vital role at every level of our organization. The result is a better understanding of the challenges we face, and a greater ability to create solutions that improve health care and quality of life.

Associate Resource Groups (ARG): There are currently nine ARGs at WellPoint: Abilities Beyond Limited Expectations (ABLE), Asians Committed to Excellence (ACE), Associate Network of Gay and Lesbian Equality (ANGLE), Healthcare Young Professional Exchange (HYPE), PRIDE - African American, SOMOS - Hispanic ARG, Veterans¹ Organization of WellPoint (VOW), WAVE and Women of WellPoint (WOW).

Diversity and Inclusion Ambassadors: An innovative approach to weaving diversity and inclusion into the fabric of our organization. Associates from different office sites across the country volunteer their time to promote awareness and understanding of WellPoint’s diversity efforts. They plan activities and events to celebrate diversity observances and company sponsored celebrations.

Diversity Training: At the core of our diversity initiatives are our diversity training and education programs. Our new hire orientation program includes a diversity and inclusion online course to help new associates become acquainted with WellPoint’s philosophy, strategies and programs in this area. More in depth educational diversity opportunities are offered online as well as through regularly scheduled teleseminars. Associates also have access to an online diversity tool box with practical tools on how to effectively manage and champion diversity in the workplace.
