BCBS Of Minnesota CEO Dana Erickson Shares Leadership Lessons At Women In Business
3 Mar 2022
Recently, the Minnesota Chamber continued its return to in-person events with another chapter of the Women in Business series. The event held at the St. Paul Hotel featured President and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, Dana Erickson, in her first public event in her new role. Dana shared how her community-oriented upbringing led to a career in health care as a registered nurse and now the first female CEO in Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota history.
"I worked as a labor and delivery nurse for several years at a suburb of Milwaukee where I actually could have joy with families that were welcoming lives into the world," she said. "And then I cried with families who had to make tough decisions and say goodbye to loved ones, whether that was at the end of a long life, or that was too early. And It was a real privilege for me to be able to experience that."
