American Bankers Association (ABA), Virginia Bankers Association (VBA) and Maryland Bankers Association (MBA) are joining together to host the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit for bankers nationwide. This virtual event is designed to help bankers become an agent of change for the banking industry and for the community. The DEI Summit will help bankers master the leading practices for mitigating the systemic barriers that disadvantage marginalized groups in the industry—and give actionable steps to implement change.
The VBA is committed to providing banks with the resources needed to build and develop strong teams of banking professionals. This past summer, eleven banks participated in the VBA Internship Program across the Commonwealth, hosting 33 students from different colleges and universities. Based on the feedback we received from the interns at the end of the summer, 100% said that the internship made them more interested in the banking industry.
This conference is designed for emerging banking leaders and members of the Virginia Bankers Association Emerging Bank Leaders (EBL) group. This conference will give Emerging Bank Leaders the opportunity to share ideas and network with peers from across the state. You do not have to be an EBL member to attend.
