At UnitedHealth Group, the technology and innovation we invent is in service of a future where health care serves everyone more fairly, productively and consistently.

Folds of Honor is a national nonprofit that provides educational scholarships for the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled service members. The organization was started in 2007 and now has 9 chapters across the United States.
The Inclusion and Diversity Councils at UnitedHealth Group provides a pathway to carry out the organization’s mission to help people live healthier lives and help make the health system work better for everyone.
In early March, UnitedHealth Group’s Enterprise Research and Development Team will present at the South by Southwest, (SXSW) Conference in Austin, Texas. The conference is an interactive forum that brings music, film, and innovative thought leaders from various industries together to share ideas, and breakthroughs in multiple fields. For UnitedHealth Group, this opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time as we are partnering to drive an incredible study – one that pushes the envelope in the approach to the management of chronic disease.
The success we celebrate at UnitedHealth Group is a direct result of the dedicated employees all over the world who are committed to our mission to help people live healthier lives and to help make the health system work better for everyone. This is why creating an inclusive work environment, where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their personal goals and realize their full potential, is just a natural expression of our core values.

In today’s competitive landscape, a mentoring relationship can give you an edge that differentiates you from the pack.
