For over a decade, the VBA’s Executive Leadership Institute
(ELI), a 5-month leadership development program for highly
motivated and high potential bankers who are currently in or
progressing toward a senior level position, has been known for
its intense level of connection, learnings and peer relationships
that are fostered by its in-person format and deep content.
The Management Development Program is a five-month program
designed for entry level bankers who have developed a passion for
banking, want to enhance their knowledge of the business of
banking, and who are motivated to excel in their career and reach
their full potential.
As part of our overall diversity and inclusion efforts, the VBA has created the Women’s Mentorship Pilot Program to assist our member banks with preparing the talented women within your banks for future senior leadership positions.
VBA and the American Bankers Association are joining together to launch their first-ever virtual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit for bankers nationwide. This event is an important part of continuing a meaningful dialogue on fostering positive change in the industry. Sponsored by ABA associate member Ncontracts®, the value-packed program will help bankers cultivate a network of peers to share DEI leading practices and explore new opportunities and initiatives for their own institutions. The goal? To equip bankers all over the country with tools to mitigate systemic biases and foster greater inclusion for those disadvantaged by age, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender or other identity factors.
