DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Prime’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is rooted
in our collective values as a company and inseparable from our purpose and dedication to serving others.
A journey toward ongoing improvement
Diversity and inclusion efforts are seen, heard and felt. These positive outward actions become part of our DNA as an organization.
We champion diversity and inclusion (D&I) awareness, initiatives, communication, outreach and events at Prime Therapeutics to foster strong employee engagement and business success and reflect the communities in which we live and serve.
Every journey starts with a step. Our step was embarking on a path toward creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive culture; both under our roof and with clients and partners.
The most important outcome of our journey is that all of Prime’s people know how to learn from each other, have courageous conversations, and turn words and ideas into understanding and action.
When we examine how we talk about our DEI efforts and the words we use, we can be honest in our challenges and clear in our objectives moving forward.
“We are dedicated to allyship in its multiple forms. We do this individually by continuing our own learning. With each other, we learn to speak up when it’s right and lend a supportive hand or ear. We do this at home with our families and in our communities. And now we want to do more of this at work with our teams and departments, using our words and our actions.”
Sr. Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary to Board of Directors
“If we want to help foster a culture at Prime where everyone feels like they belong and can thrive, we have to be fully engaged in the process to do so. Being involved in ERG events and initiatives strengthens employee engagement,
provides opportunities for professional development, allows for networking and socializing, helps foster a better work environment where everyone can be their authentic selves, and raises awareness of relevant issues.”

“Prime’s DEI efforts makes me feel confident that the company is working to become more transparent and equitable. I feel that I can be more authentic to myself at work knowing that diversity, equity and inclusion are valued in the company. By feeling welcome at Prime, I am encouraged to apply those same values in serving our clients and members.”

“I am incredibly proud of the safe and brave space that our DEI work at Prime has helped to build and sustain. As we work to put advocacy behind our words and actions behind our intentions, we are making strides to advance the vision at Prime that aims to make our positive actions part of Prime’s organizational DNA.”
Diversity and Inclusion
Culture, family dynamics, belief systems and other characteristics can affect health care and outcomes. That understanding helps deliver a better member experience. Multilingual member communications and contact center support, a Spanish and a large font member website are important pieces to the member experience.
