MACo's Gold Corporate Partner, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, recently celebrated their first
Day of Equity and Action
on October 2.
More than 5,000 employees of
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst)
, the region’s largest healthcare company, participated today in the organization’s first Day of Equity and Action to reinforce its commitment to inclusion, equity, community service and a fuller understanding of all people.
CareFirst closed normal business operations and mobilized its employee base in five different locations throughout the region – Baltimore; Washington, DC; Cumberland, MD; Easton, MD; and Charleston, WV – to participate in team-building activities and training focused on developing behavioral tools that help to cultivate empathy and understanding in the workplace. This is part of CareFirst’s ongoing commitment to supporting a culture and environment of inclusion, equity and belonging across a richly diverse group of people of different ages, races, religions, ethnicities, veteran status, cultures, abilities, economic status, identity and sexual orientation.
