We are committed to recruit, retain and promote diverse talent to our company. We partner with external organizations to identify diverse talent. In the U.S., we have joined forces with many colleges and universities, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), to recruit our next generation of leaders.
Our Black Professional Group (BPG) was one of our first Employee Networks and now has more than 17,000 members in chapters across the U.S. BPG supports the recruitment, retention and development of Black/African American employees, offers mentoring to develop leadership skills and hosts networking and virtual events.
Established in 2012, our Black Executive Leadership Council has more than 300 members and is committed to increasing the representation and supporting the advancement of Black/African American talent at the bank.
Our programs like Diverse Leaders Sponsorship, Women’s Executive Development, Next Level Leadership and Multicultural Women Ready to Lead, alongside partners such as Executive Leadership Council, Black Enterprise, Diversity Woman Media, Coqual and MLT further enable us to identify, develop and support the career aspirations of diverse talent.
