If the financial services industry is to truly earn the full trust and respect of all segments of our society, banks must be as diverse as the communities in which they operate and serve. In this session, participants will learn why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives are critical to their institution’s long-term success and profitability. An extensive body of research suggests that organizations that excel at DEI are higher-performing companies measured by business, financial, brand, and talent outcomes. It is more important than ever for banks to implement policies and practices that welcome and engage talent across a diverse range of identities inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation. For younger job seekers and Gen Z employees especially, diversity and inclusion in the workplace are not a preference. They are a requirement.
