City National Bank announced today it has been named by the National Diversity Council as a 2021 National Top Employer for Latino Leaders. The National Diversity Council is a nonprofit organization committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in workplaces and communities.
“Nearly a quarter of City National’s colleagues identify as Latino or Hispanic, including many leaders in senior positions and on our Executive Committee,” said City National Bank CEO Kelly Coffey. “We can only ever be as strong as the colleagues who make up our organization, and it is so meaningful to be recognized for the ways we support one another — not just our Latino colleagues, but all of our colleagues across the bank.”
This award recognizes organizations with an “extraordinary and unfailing commitment” to Latinos in the workplace and surrounding communities. Each honoree exemplifies an organizational culture that supports and leverages Latino colleagues for optimal success, as well as demonstrates dedication to the recruitment, development and retention of individuals from all populations.
“I am incredibly proud of our continued efforts around diversity, equity and inclusion, and the fact that we prioritize supporting and recognizing all of our diverse colleagues, clients and communities throughout the country,” added Coffey. “Fostering a work environment that welcomes and champions different points of view is more than a way to support our success — it’s the right thing to do.”
City National’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion includes programs and initiatives such as the following:
This award comes on the heels of other accolades City National and Coffey have received for the bank’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, including Forbes magazine’s “2021 Best Employers for Women” and the Los Angeles Business Journal’s “2021 Diversity, Inclusion and Equity CEO of the Year.”
