Diversity and Inclusion are important to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) culture. It starts with our CEO and is encouraged throughout our company. We value diversity because it helps to create a better company for our employees that translates into the best experience for our customers.
The Diversity Business Council was developed to be responsible for BCBSNE’s commitment to diversity. Compromised of 25 employees with diverse backgrounds from different areas of the organization, the Council helps our company stay committed to four main areas of diversity and inclusion:
People - Attract, retain and advance a diverse and fully engaged workforce through an inclusive environment that encompasses all cultures, backgrounds and perspectives
Community Engagement - Create and build relationships with community-based organizations that reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion to serve diverse populations
Products and Marketing - Commit to reflecting the gender, racial, ethnic, generational, family and physical ability diversity that exists within our state in print, web and electronic marketing
Supplier Diversity - Enhance our local economy by strengthening relationships with female and minority- owned businesses as suppliers and vendors
We reinforce our commitment through ongoing diversity trainings, companywide cultural awareness events and professional development that encourages the true value of diversity and inclusion.
