From The Company
In 2021, KeyBank continued to capitalize on our long-standing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I)—by intensifying our focus on improving the outcomes and effectiveness of our programs and efforts, inside and outside of Key.
We have publicly committed to increasing People of Color (POC) representation in our senior leadership ranks by 25% by 2025 and by 50% by 2030.
We have made commitments to engage a diverse and talented team, cultivate an inclusive culture, foster a diverse supplier base, and increase access and equity for all of our stakeholders. Some highlights of our 2021 results include:
- Implemented a new compensation strategy that ties DE&I performance indicators directly to executive compensation.
- Implemented an eight-part DE&I training series required for all employees.
- Increased year-over-year diverse spend by $15 million and increased our number of diverse suppliers by 70%.
- Extended our National Community Benefits Plan to more than $40 billion in investments on affordable housing, home lending, small business lending and philanthropy.
