Lead by Cigna's internal Colleague Resource Group, “People with Different Abilities,” employees across the U.S. are working together to update old “handicapped” icons with actionable symbols that visually redefines what people with disabilities can do. The new icon shows that all people with disabilities are able-bodied, and can be active and engaged in their environment. Over the past year, hundreds of employees from five Cigna offices have proudly repainted the new inclusive icons. This project is also part of the U.S. Accessible Icon Project focused on updating the icon across the globe.
Established more than 50 years ago, in 1962, the Cigna Foundation carries out our corporate philanthropy goals of bringing Cigna’s mission and brand promise to life for individuals and communities around the globe. This is accomplished through strategically focused charitable grants to nonprofit organizations whose work enhances the health of individuals and families and the well-being of their communities.
