Many People, One Company

We’re committed to diversity and inclusion at Blue Cross. It starts with our executive team and is valued and reinforced throughout our organization.

More than a decade ago, Daniel J. Loepp, president and CEO, established the Diversity Leadership Council, which provides leadership and guidance for diversity and inclusion practices and initiatives. The members actively engage employees in understanding the many facets of diversity and enabling Blue Cross to provide the best in customer service.

With a focus on developing cultural competency among employees, Blue Cross holds learning sessions throughout the year to increase awareness and understanding of different cultures, communities, generations, workstyles and perspectives.

With 10 Employee Resource Networks that also strengthen our commitment to an inclusive workplace, the networks bring together employees who have a common interest to learn, engage and serve as allies. The ERNs also provide professional development opportunities and provide fresh perspectives to make our business better. All ERNs are open to any employee who is interested in joining.

The 10 Employee Resource Networks:

  • Multicultural Network - Embracing a full spectrum of diverse dimensions
  • POWER Network - Professional women's network
  • Equally Blue Network - Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and ally network
  • Active Blue - Physical fitness and wellness
  • BlueACTS - African Ancestry Committed to Success
  • Young Professional Network - Interns, full-time employees and all generations
  • Azul Hispanic Latino Professionals Network
  • Asian-Pacific Employee Resource Network
  • Veterans Network
  • Bright Blue - differently abled and ally network

Learning sessions and volunteer activities are held throughout the year to engage employees. During August, Blue Cross holds more than 30 learning sessions to Celebrate Diversity!
