Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Our Workforce Reflects the Communities We Serve

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are an integral part of Centene's culture and has been since the start of the company. This commitment has led to recognitions including being named in the top 50 companies for diversity by Fair360 (formerly DiversityInc) for the fourth year in a row.

Additionally, Centene’s recruiting team goes through rigorous training and we’re proud to say each one is a Certified Diversity Recruiter (CDR). It is our mission to attract, develop and retain individuals who stand behind our mission of transforming the health of the communities we serve, one person at a time.
