CareSource is a proud sponsor of Pride events across Ohio including Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati. Pride is celebrated throughout the month of June and has become "something of a spiritual homecoming" for our LGBTQIA+ community and allies. Pride begins with several events, including speaker series, drag shows, concerts, performances and LGBTQIA+ focused art collections and food events.

“Pride sponsorship and support from CareSource for both the employees and the community speak to the organizations commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Dirk Kreutzer, manager, product management, Ohio Medicaid and chair of PLUS Employee Resource Group at CareSource. “I am very proud to say I work at a company that values my authentic self and encourages inclusiveness of all peoples, all year long.”

CareSource’s Employee Resource Group PLUS represents "Pride, Love, Understanding, Support." PLUS was established to amplify the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual people, as well as others across the sexual identity spectrum. The group creates a workplace environment and community in which LGBTQIA+ employees are successful, respected and valued.

CareSource's mission is to make a lasting difference in members' lives by improving their health and well-being. Diversity, equity and inclusion are key enablers to achieving this purpose and help the organization be the most trusted partner to our members, health partners and employees.
