Supplier diversity enhances our corporate relationships and contributes to our ability to better understand and serve our broad spectrum of customers.
The Cigna GroupSM believes the success of minority- and women-owned businesses and other under-represented suppliers adds to our success and to that of the communities we serve. By partnering with these suppliers, we can foster the growth of these businesses while ensuring the long-term growth of The Cigna Group. Our supplier diversity program is designed to engage suppliers who share our commitment to integrity, quality, and efficiency and continue to support our purchasing needs.

The Cigna Group launched its Cigna Supplier Mentor Protégé Program (CSMPP) in 2016.
Certified diverse suppliers (protégés) are paired with executives at The Cigna Group to help develop strategies to strengthen and expand their businesses.
Throughout the 15 months, protégés have one-on-one monthly meetings with their dedicated mentor, and once each quarter, protégés attend onsite forums to learn about industry best practices from subject matter experts.
The Cigna Group is very proud of the program and is committed to the goal of helping protégé companies grow their businesses so they can continue to contribute to their local communities.
