Smart Women 2016: Redefining success every step of the way

Success doesn’t just show up at the door. That’s why one of our strongest commitments is giving women the tools they need to go get it. It might be easier said than done, but knowing what you want and having the support to achieve it is the first step to success.

And we know that having successful associates is what continues to make us a successful organization.

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is proud to support the April 20, 2016, 2016 Smart Women Breakfast & Awards. We strongly believe in creating innovative solutions that redefine what it means to partner with communities. Being a leader in the market also comes with great responsibility, that’s why our health care plans are designed to help people make smarter decisions about their health … and their budget.

Anthem’s Women’s Inspired Network (WIN) promotes women’s leadership development and advancement, and a culture that values personal and professional well-being. WIN helps women navigate their careers in today’s ever-changing corporate environment and understand the unwritten rules of the workplace.

We’re honored to have been named a Top 50 Company for Executive Women by the National Association for Female Executives. And hope our experience can play a role in guiding other women to achieve their goals.

Here are five steps you can use to redefine your own success*:

  1. Define your own meaning of success. See things from different perspectives so you know exactly which way to go.
  2. Be proud of what makes you unique. Use your differences to your advantage to establish a strong career.
  3. Don’t let what you do define who you are. Find a healthy balance between home and the office.
  4. Pursue your passion and the rest will follow. Discover what makes you happy and go for it.
  5. Enjoy the journey — Take in all the experiences while you get to your destination.

Now let’s all take a moment to celebrate those around us who are redefining success!
