American Bankers Association THE MISSISSIPPI BANKER

Diversifying Our Most Important Asset By Rob Nichols, President and CEO, American Bankers Association

They say you can’t improve what you don’t measure. That is why ABA has established a dashboard that shows the gender, ethnic and generational breakdown Nichols of our workforce, from the customer service operators to the C-suite. This snapshot is a critical first step in a self-assessment of progress towards our goal to be the kind of diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that attracts and retains the best talent. It shows where we are and where we have room to improve; for example, it shows our staff is 39 percent non-white, 37 percent Gen X and that 45 percent of SVPs and up are women. We want top talent for the same reason banks—many of whom have landed on “great place to work” lists, as ABA did last year—do: Because it helps us succeed. And there’s no denying that success is boosted by a diverse workforce. I appointed a staff task force in 2017 to explore how ABA can enhance our own approach to diversity and inclusion, and the group’s report made a strong business case for taking our efforts to the next level. Consider that 43 percent of millennials—now our largest generation—is nonwhite, and that the U.S. is projected to not have a single racial or ethnic majority by 2055. That alone tells you that if you don’t have a diverse workforce in the fairly near future, you won’t have a workforce. Studies have also shown that companies with greater gender and ethnic diversity are more likely to outperform those with less. But the most important case for diversity is simple: Ensuring your institution’s employees and leaders reflect the communities they serve—and treating all employees equitably, making them feel included—is the right thing to do. Banking leaders have told me they wholeheartedly agree, and some are 34

further along in their DE&I efforts than others. Some, for example, have landed on Forbes’ Best Employers for Diversity list, while others, including those operating far from diversity-rich cities, are still grappling with attracting diverse talent. Remember, though, that workplace diversity isn’t just about color; it’s about ensuring you have a range of perspectives and experiences informing your decisions. That can come from anyone whose background is different

"Ensuring your institution’s employees and leaders reflect the communities they serve—and treating all employees equitably, making them feel included—is the right thing to do." from yours. Think gender, age, military service, disabilities, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, etc. The good news is banks don’t have to figure all this out on their own. There also are a host of organizations that are eager to share their insights to help you get it right, and ABA offers training, conferences and resources in this space— all cataloged at aba.com/Diversity. In addition, the Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion at the eight financial regulatory agencies held a summit last fall where banks and others who are further down the path towards a model DE&I workplace shared best practices related to employment and procurement practices. The ideas exchanged ranged from participating on the boards of colleges, utilizing minority and women owned recruiting firms and offering internships and mentoring to students at local lowincome, minority-majority high schools. Similar suggestions were included in testimony during the first hearing, held

THE MISSISSIPPI BANKER

in February, of the new House Financial Services Diversity & Inclusion subcommittee—a panel whose very existence is a testament to the social, commercial and economic importance of this issue. Carla Harris, vice chair of wealth management at Morgan Stanley and a popular speaker on issues related to diversity and inclusion, offered her own advice at ABA’s 2018 Annual Convention in New York. Among her suggestions: • Most fundamentally, check your unconscious bias; we all have it, and we can all benefit from training on how to spot it. • Make sure you lead in an inclusive way, soliciting views from all and making employees feel valued, seen and heard. If your staff is not feeling this way, you’ll likely be challenged in both retaining and attracting more diverse talent. • Be fair in your distribution of assignments so everyone has a chance to grow and no one is at a deficit when the next promotional opportunity arises. • Be intentional about making sure staff have the right sponsors, who have a far greater impact on advancement than mentors. • Finally, remember the pace at which our environment and competitive landscape is changing and take a step today—even if it’s pressing pause before you fill your next job opening—towards ensuring you’ll emerge as an employer of choice tomorrow. Nothing will influence your bank’s future success more than the women and men who run it day-to-day. I would add my encouragement that you set up your own human capital dashboard. We all have a sense of where we’d like our institutions to be two, three, five years from now. But whether our goals are financial, business or diversity in nature, we won’t know how close we are to reaching them if we don’t measure our progress. e Fo r m o r e i n f o r m a t i o n , v i s i t aba.com/Diversity.


Independent Community Bankers Association THE MISSISSIPPI BANKER

From the Top

By Preston Kennedy, ICBA Chairman, President and CEO of Zachary Bancshares Inc., Zachary, La.

Community banks ask for nothing but a level playing field on which to compete. In a fair fight, we like our chances. As I became the new ICBA chairman at ICBA LIVE in Nashville, Tenn., Kennedy last month, I shared a personal story about how my bank came together in the face of a challenge and succeeded by demonstrating our value. When one of our oldest small-business customers said they would be moving to a larger financial institution, I promised to personally lead the transfer if we couldn’t prove we were their best possible financial partner. We had two weeks to prepare our pitch. Turns out, the answer was right in front of my face. The logo for our bank is four identical designs that come together to form one image. I came to recognize that these four panes represent our constituent groups: customers, employees, shareholders and community. Just as these four panes must be equal and balanced to form our logo, our com-

mitment to these groups defines what it means to be a community bank. We had to demonstrate our ability to meet the financial needs of this customer, the expertise and vision of employees and leadership, our recognition as a leading corporate citizen, and the reasonable return we provide our shareholders.

“Community banks ask for nothing but a level playing field on which to compete. In a fair fight, we like our chances.” In the process, we articulated our formula for successful community banking and began to publicly hold ourselves accountable to each of our constituent groups—on our website, in our marketing material, even on the walls of our branches. And during our meeting with the longtime customer who had one foot out the door, we showed that our shared vision could best be realized through our mutually satisfying relationship. We held on to that customer, and they

are still our customer to this day. But if they had walked away, it would not have changed who we are. We are an independent community bank. We balance the needs of our customers, employees, shareholders and community at large. As community bankers and members of ICBA, we all instinctively and intrinsically understand the value of a community bank relationship. For nearly a century, ICBA has fought to protect our franchise value and advance the community bank business model, to create and promote an environment where community banks can flourish. This is the business we have chosen. And as we continue to fight to preserve the community banking model, to keep our reputations clean and to exert our influence in Washington, I like our chances. My Top Three I got to thinking about my all-time favorite bands while in Music City. 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band 2. Dire Straits 3. Cowboy Junkies e
