Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Lift Every Voice
Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) program focuses on our current and future employees, vendor relationships, and local communities. We understand that cultural competence and inclusion leverage the skills and resources of diverse employees. And by working with local leaders and community organizations that seek to bring attention to social justice, human rights, civil rights, equity and inclusion, we can fulfill our vision.
Our mission is powered by our core values. Through these values, we consciously foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce with a shared commitment to collaborative innovation, sustainable growth and positive progress for our teammates, clients, communities, shareholders and vendors.
As a company conducting business across six states, we have a large and diverse customer base. Being an inclusive workplace, where differences are valued, encouraged and respected, allows us to better understand and support our customers and the communities we serve. And it allows our associates to express their unique gifts and talents.
Cadence Bank is committed to providing equal employment opportunity without regard to race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy, age, disability, socioeconomic and family status, political affiliation or protected veteran status.
A better place to work, a better place to do business.
Diversity values our differences, recognizing that each employee’s individual experiences and perspectives can contribute to the organization in unique ways. Equity speaks to rewarding talent equitably, while inclusion is a seat at the table where one’s authentic voice is heard.
The CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ aims to rally the business community to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. As a signatory of CEO Action, we proudly commit to supporting a more inclusive workplace and cultivating a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to have discussions about diversity and inclusion.
