Diversity

Where individuality and innovation come together.

We embrace and encourage a culture of diversity and inclusion by embedding it into our core values. By honoring diversity, we help to ensure our collective success, as well as the health and well-being of our customers. We have developed innovative materials, programs and services to address the unique health education and insurance needs of a growing diverse population.

Diversity in the Workplace

We don't just say diversity is important at UnitedHealthcare, we prove it with our own diversified workforce. By building a talented, diverse team, we can better meet the unique needs of the multicultural customers and communities we serve.

The total sum of an individual's background, experiences, perspectives and beliefs will affect their work and how they do it. Our goal is to attract strong contributors and ensure that their ideas will be heard, respected and valued. Can you imagine the possibilities that arise from that? We can.

That's why we work with diverse organizations and collaborate with universities across the country through campus initiatives. We also take action to employ and advance qualified individuals with disabilities, including disabled veterans. In addition, we actively seek to collaborate with diverse suppliers that reflect the multicultural markets we serve.

Serving our Diverse Customers
