The Power of Differences

This video is a snapshot of CVS Caremark’s diversity story. It conveys the genuine spirit and enthusiasm our colleagues have around this issue, and, perhaps more importantly, their dedication to appreciating the diversity among each other, and among our customers, patients and clients.

When CVS Caremark was recognized as one of DiversityInc’s 25 Noteworthy Companies this year, I was pleased that others were taking notice of something I see firsthand working here every day: people fundamentally respecting and celebrating each others’ differences. As a company we have begun to unlock the power inherent in those differences. It helps us more fully experience our corporate values. The fact that we are not all the same helps us innovate, requires us to collaborate, and asks us to care about each others’ opinions in a way that holds us all to the highest levels of integrity and accountability. 

Our Corporate Social Responsibility Report shows that we are committed to diversity through free health initiatives, philanthropic involvement and in the diverse products we offer. In its pages one also sees that we continue to make progress in diversity management, supplier diversity and in our efforts to foster colleague resource groups. And the report shows our commitment to our critical partnerships with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and the National Urban League.

But what the pages of that report cannot show is what I hope you will hear and see in this video. That the people working at CVS Caremark are truly passionate about diversity; and they are using that passion, every day, to help people, all people, on their path to better health.

Thank you,
