Diversity, Equity &
Inclusion (DE&I)

Meet Emanuella, Operating Effectiveness Lead Analyst, Cigna

Emanuella, Operating Effectiveness Lead Analyst, Cigna

“When I joined Cigna about 2 years ago, I was able to help launch our community service efforts through a partnership with Open Hand Atlanta – a food delivery service that strives to eliminate disability and untimely death due to nutrition-sensitive chronic disease. I met a member while at the event and she was so excited that we were there. It helped me make the connection that we are so much more than an insurance company – we help our communities thrive. I believe everyone’s purpose in life is to serve and Cigna helps me do just that.”
