Evolent Health is committed to its mission to change the health of the nation by changing the way health care is delivered.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Evolent, fostering inclusion is one of our core values. We focus on listening to the voices of our team and those we serve, embracing tough conversations, and celebrating diversity across our workforce.

In 2020 we began to regularly monitor and employ diverse sourcing channels for all roles where we found a deficit of diverse candidates in the direct applicant pool, and we created a monthly report of diverse interview and hiring results for our talent and business leadership teams to review and internalize. Additionally, through the work of the PRIDE business resource group, Evolent earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index.

Supplier Diversity

Evolent assesses its vendor network to see where we can reinforce diversity and equity – by emphasizing within Evolent and our suppliers the importance of spending with local small businesses as well as minority- and women-owned businesses. In 2020, in collaboration with a partner in Illinois, we developed a program that required all suppliers to that partner to meet 35% of total spend with minority-owned and women-owned businesses in Illinois.

Community Impact

Evolent is proud to support and invest in our local communities. Connecting with members of the community and partnering with organizations that contribute to our mission drives positive outcomes for all of us. The following are examples of our impact in 2020:

  • Evolunteers logged ~15,000 hours of community service in 2020
  • Donations were made to over 30 local organizations during our annual 2020 Season of Giving program. Organizations included Ronald McDonald House Charities, Crisis Text Line, American Red Cross, The Anti-Cruelty Society, Masada Homes, and Operation Gratitude.
  • In response to COVID-19, individuals and teams across the company sewed masks and delivered them to those in need, including over 10,000 masks for children in Chicago communities; volunteered at local food banks; and went above and beyond their normal responsibilities to provide high-risk patients with groceries and medications to stay safe at home.
  • In 2020, Evolent teamed up with the nonprofit When We All Vote to promote civic engagement and encourage Americans to vote in the historic election. Through our campaign, nearly 17,000 people interacted with our 26 social posts. How we vote influences health care and health in a myriad of ways, from setting national health policy and deciding on Medicaid expansion, to ensuring safe drinking water, protecting air quality and funding recreational programs and parks that promote healthy lifestyles.
