Advancing the Race Dialogue

At Cigna, we value and celebrate diversity and inclusion.
Acts of racial injustice can bring on many emotions. Find strategies for maintaining your well-being and resources to take action and build better understanding.

Together, we can begin the path forward.

Recent events have placed a spotlight on systemic racism in American culture. Increasingly, experts are defining racism as a public health crisis where no one is immune. Cigna is committed to advancing the conversation on systemic racism, and improving the lives in the communities we serve. This process forward will require compassion for self and others.
