We value diversity and inclusion

We’re committed to diversity and inclusion in all we do – from our workforce and clients to our communities and suppliers.

Our commitment starts at the top

We launched the KeyCorp Diversity and Inclusion Council in 2012 to strengthen our focus.  The Council's goals include building a more diverse employee base and leading an inclusive culture, as well as supporting diverse community engagements.

Supporting diversity in our communities

We're helping women in need gain the confidence – and the professional attire – to secure a job through our support.

When Cleveland hosted the Gay Games, our sponsorship and employee volunteers supported the success of this exciting international event.
