Our vision is to provide a forum to communicate and exchange information for the purpose of cultivating, both professionally and personally, the knowledge and experiences of Horizon BCBSNJ’s employees of African ancestry and the communities they serve. We aim to add value to Horizon BCBSNJ by supporting its corporate strategies and goals, and enhancing the contributions of the Enterprise through a collaborative partnership of community service.
I am extremely pleased to be the executive sponsor of Coalition. In my years at Horizon I have seen the tremendous work achieved by the affinity groups and thrilled to be working with this accomplished group of professionals. In today’s environment it is even more critical to focus on and celebrate our diversity and continue to work with the Horizon leadership team to ensure affordable access to care for members in all communities within our service area. In addition, in the aftermath of the highly publicized murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other African Americans, affinity group such as Coalition are crucial for our minority team members to share their concerns and outline a tangible path forward. I am excited to be part of this very effective team and look forward to continued success.
