Independence Blue Cross CEO Greg Deavens was profiled by The Philadelphia Citizen about his first year as the head of the region’s largest health insurer and taking that on in the midst of a global pandemic and a national reckoning of social injustice. Greg shares with Larry Platt his vision, philosophy, and priorities for the future, including diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Right out of the gate, Deavens has put his stamp on the company, and is showing signs of doing the same when it comes to our region’s fortunes. This is particularly true when it comes to two of his abiding passions: diversity and inclusion, and confronting stubborn health equity issues,” writes Larry Platt for The Philadelphia Citizen.
