Supplier Diversity

“Supplier diversity is an important part of WellPoint’s strategy and reflects our commitment to the diversity of our nearly 36 million members nationwide.  By actively seeking out a diverse pool of suppliers, we create an environment where the best ideas, products, and solutions rise to the top.  This leads to more affordable products and services, strengthens our connection to the local communities we serve, and empowers our members to lead healthier lives.”

At WellPoint, we recognize the importance of diversity. We are committed to being a valuable member of the communities in which we live and operate. Diversity in our supplier base is an important part of that commitment. A wide range of suppliers is needed to support our business operations.
 
Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we are dedicated to diversifying our supplier base to include minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender)-owned and disabled-owned businesses wherever possible. We actively work to include diverse suppliers in every bidding opportunity. In fact, over the past two years, we spent nearly 49 percent more with certified diverse suppliers.
 
Our supplier diversity initiative is one of the building blocks that support WellPoint's overall success. We look forward to continued growth in our program.
