Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our promise is to advance an inclusive culture of belonging that is powerfully diverse, strives for equity, and values every person’s unique differences and the talents we each bring in service of our mission.

We Stand Together

At The Cigna GroupSM, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a business priority. We believe DEI and a culture of belonging must be embraced, embedded, and championed in order to be effective across our company – and in doing so, we grow stronger in our ability to positively impact the people and communities we serve.

  • We have zero tolerance for racism of any kind by anyone and toward anyone. Racism is absolutely unacceptable at The Cigna Group and in our society. It goes against everything we stand for as a responsible global organization and health service leader.
  • Investing in the health of our communities is critical to our mission. We promote full acceptance of differences and understanding of diversity. Investing in the health of our communities is critical to our mission. We are focused on pursuing health equity for all by eliminating unfair and unjust barriers in health care.
  • We believe in finding common ground to help create a better world. We’re committed to ensuring people feel comfortable being themselves at work. The more we understand each other and treat each other with dignity and respect, the stronger we will be.

Being transparent and tracking progress on our commitments are key steps toward delivering real, sustainable change. We publish an annual DEI scorecard, which reflects our goal-oriented approach and the targeted actions we’re taking to make meaningful impact in three key areas – culture and co-workers, clients and customers, and communities.

Hear from Our Leaders

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is reflected in every area of our business and firmly rooted in our company’s values. DEI is also a critical cornerstone of our mission – to improve the health and vitality of those we serve, inclusive of our customers, patients, and colleagues. The only way we can achieve this is by respecting and celebrating that which makes us all unique and important as individuals.David M. Cordani Chairman and CEO
At The Cigna Group, the vitality, well-being and collective strengths of our entire team is critical to our continued success. And as such, we’re committed to valuing, celebrating, and leveraging our diverse stakeholders’ backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. We know this supports better decision-making, greater innovation and higher levels of engagement – which ultimately helps us better serve our customers and communities, and advance better health for all.Geneva Brown Vice President, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

How We’re Making It Happen

Leadership accountability

We seek to elevate a diverse next generation of leaders. To do this, we launched the Enterprise DEI Council of The Cigna Group with two committees:

  • Health Equity Committee – With the mission to ensure that all people have the opportunity to achieve their full health potential regardless of social, economic, or environmental circumstances, we oversee programs that address social determinants of health (SDOH) and offer solutions that make quality, affordable health care available for everyone.

  • Leadership Accountability Committee – With the mission to drive strategic accountability for results and ensure shared leadership accountability for behaviors and actions that facilitate belonging, innovation, and equity for all The Cigna Group colleagues.

Inclusive culture

We ensure every employee feels a sense of belonging and is able to reach their fullest potential. We accomplish this by offering 11 Enterprise Resource Groups (ERGs), requiring unconscious bias training for all employees, providing forums for employees to learn about different cultures and perspectives in our Inspiring Inclusive Conversation series, and holding the annual Global Women’s Leadership Summit and the Experience Diversity Summit.

Organizational commitment

We proactively monitor our people, processes and programs to ensure fair outcomes. With the goal of furthering our connection with diverse suppliers, we’ve committed to spending $1B annually with diverse suppliers by 2025. And we continue to monitor our compensation programs for potential disparities.

It is the policy of The Cigna Group to recruit, hire, train, and promote individuals in all job roles and ensure that all other personnel actions are administered without regard to race, color, age, disability, sex (including pregnancy), childbirth, or related medical conditions, including but not limited to lactation, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran or military status, religion, national origin, ancestry, marital or familial status, genetic information, status with regard to public assistance, citizenship status, or any characteristic protected by applicable equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws.

Mission alignment

We showcase the impact of diversity, equity, and inclusion with our colleagues, customers, clients, and communities. Each year, we host our Experience Diversity Summit and our Global Women’s Leadership Summit for thousands of employees, leaders, and community partners to explore and learn from our differences and similarities through storytelling.
