Centene is proud to be named to FORTUNE® magazine's 2020 list of the World's Most Admired Companies® for the second consecutive year, including ranking No. 2 in the Insurance and Managed Care industry category.

2020 Bloomberg Gender Equality Index

The GEI is designed to spotlight companies that have made strong commitments to gender equality through policy development, representation, and transparency. Membership is determined by evaluating a company's gender statistics, policies, community engagement, and products and services. Centene ranked particularly well in regard to gender statistics within our employee base, leadership, and products and services.

Below are some of the highlights that earned Centene a spot on the 2020 GEI:

  • Women account for 75% of Centene's workforce.
  • Women comprise 64% of supervisors and above.
  • Women constitute more than 30% of our executive leadership team.
