U.S. Bank stands with our Asian American and Asian Pacific Islander employees, customers and communities, condemning recent violence and xenophobia. We have zero tolerance for harassment or intimidation in our organization. Diversity, equity and inclusion are core to everything we do at U.S. Bank, and we pledge to do our part to combat biases and acts of violence against Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
Last year, U.S. Bank joined Ascend (#AscendTogether) and their partners, Catalyst, Executive Leadership Council (ELC), Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), National Organization on Disability (NOD) and Out & Equal as a Supporting Company on a five-point COVID-19 response Action Agenda to promote inclusion, raise awareness, denounce bias, support communities and give donations.
Today, U.S. Bank announces that we’re increasing our support of Ascend. The funding will go toward programming that educates professionals on bias, including the “model minority” myth.
“The continued violence and hatred toward Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will not and should not be tolerated,” said Greg Cunningham, U.S. Bank Chief Diversity Officer. “We will stand with our Asian American and Pacific Islander employees, customers and communities in partnership with organizations like Ascend to promote inclusion and denounce systemic bias and racism. Our work is never done.”
