Vendor Diversity

We believe that banks that actively embrace diversity and consistently demonstrate their commitment to the communities they serve, establish a sustainable competitive advantage in the marketplace.

We proactively seek diverse suppliers.  To support our community, we must include the broadest range of people, ideas, products and services possible.  Our Vendor Diversity program does just that.  We do everything we can to ensure that businesses managed by a minority or woman are afforded equal opportunity to participate in our procurement processes.

To qualify for our Diversity program a business must be at least 51% owned, controlled, and managed by a minority or woman.

We encourage prospective suppliers to contact our Vendor Diversity Officer for more information at
