DALLAS, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Comerica Bank received five stars – the highest marking – in the category of governance as part of the 2021 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index.
The HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (CII), a research initiative conducted by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), assists in benchmarking the status of Hispanic diversity and inclusion in corporate America.
Comerica's participation in the survey underlines its commitment to Hispanic inclusion. The index improves corporations' understanding of success and deficits related to Hispanic diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives and provides a pathway to progress rooted in evidence-based practices and strategies.
"Comerica strives to ensure a diverse and inclusive work environment and anytime there is an opportunity to enhance our performance it is typically met with action," said Nate Bennett, Chief Diversity Officer, Comerica Bank. "By fostering a diverse workforce, we help to better serve our customers and communities. With the support of HACR and its Corporate Inclusion Index, we can identify areas of improvement and move toward exceeding our DEI goals."
The CII focuses on the fields of employment, procurement, philanthropy and governance. Evaluation of Comerica using key metrics in these areas will assist in identifying diversity and inclusion opportunities.
"On behalf of HACR's board of directors, we congratulate Comerica for keeping Hispanic inclusion top of mind," said Cid Wilson, president and chief executive officer of HACR. "By investing in Hispanic representation, businesses like Comerica are cultivating a dynamic corporate culture that better serves consumers and employees and provides a competitive edge."
