“We are excited to welcome Carolyn to our team, and we’re confident that her vast experience in developing inclusion and diversity strategies will advance our own efforts at Humana,” said Bruce D.

Tandy joins Humana from Texas Roadhouse where she serves as the Director of Diversity and Inclusion, leading the company’s national diversity and inclusion strategy for more than 70,000 employees across 58 markets.

“I’ve long admired Humana’s commitment to inclusion and diversity, and the results and recognition that work has garnered,” said Tandy. “Humana has a strong foundation on which to build, and the opportunity to help take that progress to the next level – by making an impact both inside and outside of the company – is humbling and exciting.”

Prior to her role at Texas Roadhouse, Tandy served for more than 10 years as the Director of Congressman John Yarmuth’s District Office. She has also held roles as Director of African American Outreach for the Democratic National Committee and Senior Advisor, Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy.

Tandy earned her BA degree at Gordon College and is a certified Diversity and Inclusion professional from Cornell University. She received her master’s degree in Management and Leadership from Webster University.
