Diversity & Inclusion

At Express Scripts, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is fueled by the passion and unique abilities of our 27,000 employees — a mosaic of talent that enriches our culture and ultimately helps us better serve our patients.

Whether it's through our inclusive culture, development opportunities, Employee Resource Groups, or having courageous conversations, we're building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive workplace and workforce.

Here's a quick look at some of our programs and partnerships designed to strengthen our commitment to diversity and inclusion:

  • Employee Resource Groups - Employee groups that provide a forum for networking, support, shared interests, and opportunities for development.

Additionally, Express Scripts was the first Fortune 100 company to host the “Check Your Blind Spots” mobile museum, which helps visitors identify their unconscious bias.

  • Experience Diversity Summit - At this annual summit, we host nationally recognized thought leaders and champions to share best practices, leading research and stories related to overcoming challenges and adversity in their personal and professional lives. By connecting individual experiences into a larger narrative, Express Scripts helps drive a greater understanding of each other and our differences.

  • Key Strategic Partnerships - Our diversity & inclusion initiatives include partnerships with The Consortium, INROADS, NSHMBA, St. Louis Arc, MVR, MSE, and Best for Vets.
