DiversityInc’s empirically-driven rankings are based on 2020 company-submitted data in six key areas: leadership accountability, human capital diversity metrics, talent programs, workforce practices, supplier diversity, and philanthropy.

“At Key, we are proud to make commitments – and take meaningful action – to support diversity, equity, and inclusion, inside the company and within our communities. While awards affirm our efforts, we have no intention of letting up on these critical priorities,” said Chris Gorman, KeyBank Chairman and CEO. “I am incredibly proud Key has been named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, and I look forward to building on our strong foundation, continuing to cultivate a workplace and workforce where diversity, equity, and inclusion are cornerstones of all we do.”
