Diversity & Inclusion

Cambia is committed to meeting people where they are on their health care journeys. To do that we need to listen, understand and reflect the diverse needs of our communities. Whether it’s through our health equity work with members, creating a workplace where everyone belongs or addressing health disparities through philanthropy, we are compelled to create equity for each other and every person we serve.

— Jared Short, President and Chief Executive Officer

Cambia is driven by our Cause to transform health care. As a people-first business, the individual success of our employees determines our organizational success. Our diversity, equity and inclusion approach surpasses traditional recruitment and retention metrics, to ensure that every teammate feels respected, supported and inspired.

We are committed to attracting top talent to serve our consumers, bringing together individuals with diverse talents, skills, backgrounds and abilities. We recognize that our team members not only contribute to the success of our organization but also assist in our goal of making health care simpler, better, and more affordable for people and their families.

One of the ways we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion is through our community investments. We strive to break cycles of poverty through the support of programs like Bridge Meadows in Oregon, mobile dentals vans in Washington, or Community Action Partnership in Idaho. We partner with organizations to empower girls through the work of the YWCA of Utah, Mary’s Place in Washington, and Girls, Inc. and the Center for Women’s Leadership at Portland State University in Oregon. We also support organizations that highlight challenges facing specific minority groups like the LGBTQIA+, Hispanic and immigrant communities.

Employee Resource Groups

We believe in empowering our employees to connect with colleagues who have similar interests and passions as they do. Our Employee Resource Groups are one way we’re supporting an inclusive workplace within our family of companies. Each ERG offers unique opportunities that center around three focus areas:  Professional development, business development, and recruitment and outreach. Explore career opportunities at Cambia.
