CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion

Cadence Bank has further strengthened its focus on creating a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment with the announcement by Cadence Bancorporation Chairman and CEO Paul Murphy that he has signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™ pledge.


As the largest CEO-driven business commitment dedicated to advancing diversity and inclusion within the workplace in the U.S., this represents an important affirmation of Cadence Bank company values:

Embrace We, Do Right, Own It and Fresh Thinking.


It also signifies our commitment to taking on four essential activities to guide collective and impactful change:


1. Supporting open dialogue on complex – and sometimes difficult – conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion
2. Implementing and expanding unconscious bias education to provide tools to adjust automatic patterns of thinking that may lead to discriminatory behaviors
3. Sharing best known – and even unsuccessful – actions 
4. Creating and sharing strategic plans specific to diversity, equity and inclusion with Cadence Bancorporation board of directors


“Diversity, equity and inclusion are difficult issues to navigate, and I recognize that these actions are not the complete answer to overcoming the injustices that exist in today’s social climate,” explained Paul. “That said, they do represent concrete steps in the right direction. By fostering an environment where associates can openly address challenges, present opportunities and share perspectives, we can do our part to build a more positive path for the future.
