WPS Health Solutions CEO signs diversity and inclusion pledge

Company renews support for CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™

MADISON, Wis.—June 21, 2023—President and CEO Wendy Perkins has joined more than 2,400 Chief Executive Officers and Presidents across the nation to pledge action on supporting a more inclusive workplace for employees, communities, and society at large.

CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™ is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace.

“My vision of a truly thriving WPS hinges on fostering an environment where everyone can be their authentic selves and share their big, bold ideas freely,” Perkins said. “When we take a closer look, ‘thriving’ suggests growth, development, achievement, and fulfillment. There is ample evidence to prove that, if done right, organizations with diverse and inclusive teams outperform their peers. It's undeniable that our potential for growth and profitability is deeply connected to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

In signing the pledge, WPS commits to:

  • Cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex and sometimes difficult conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Implement and expand unconscious bias education.
  • Share best-known diversity, equity, and inclusion programs/initiatives—as well as those that have been unsuccessful.
  • Engage our Board of Directors when developing and evaluating diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies.

WPS’ previous President and CEO first signed the pledge in 2021, and Perkins has renewed that commitment. Click to see a list of other companies that have signed the pledge.
