Supplier Diversity Services
Small, diverse businesses and suppliers share a lot of the same values that we do here at AmeriHealth Caritas
We are invested in the neighborhoods our members call home, where populations are increasingly multicultural, multilingual, and multidimensional. We work to accurately reflect the diversity of those communities.
We understand the value of your small and diverse business and the impact its success can have on the local economy. As we encourage and mentor small businesses, their growth translates to more jobs and puts them in a position to further support both AmeriHealth Caritas and other businesses in your community.
Work with us. Let’s continue to shape our communities and achieve success in our common business goals, together.

Risk and Reward: Minority-Owned Businesses and the Growth Paradox
We're committed to helping small, women-, and minority-owned businesses. As part of that mission, we sponsored a town hall meeting in Harrisburg, PA on October 17. Together with local and state leaders, we hosted a panel discussion on the benefits and challenges of diverse companies, the impact of minority businesses on the local economy, the obstacles they face, State and local programs that can help spur their growth, and more!
