Jumbotron Inclusion


How we treat individuals sets us apart.

We appreciate and celebrate everything that shapes who we are, fostering a work environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is empowered to succeed, regardless of age, color, national origin, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, race, religion, creed, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or expression. Here, we honor what makes each of us unique. Our diversity strengthens us as an organization and helps us better serve an increasingly diverse and multicultural Rhode Island population. Seven employee business resource groups (EBRGs) and our Diversity Council activate our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, so that we can lead a state of health and well-being across Rhode Island for all Rhode Islanders.
