Muslim Affinity Group’s Executive Sponsor: Michelle Machemer, Vice President, IT

MichelleMachemer-125I am honored to be the Executive Sponsor of the Muslim Affinity Group. Our culture of diversity and inclusion is an important part of what makes Horizon BCBSNJ a great company and a great place to work.

Unfortunately, in today’s society, there are many prevalent misconceptions about Islam. I am excited to participate in helping our employees address those misconceptions through education and the fulfillment of our mission of Charity, which is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Being part of this affinity group will allow me to play an important role in promoting a more accurate understanding of Islam, both within Horizon BCBSNJ and in the communities we serve.
