Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Corporate Policy Statement

With the changing demographics in society and evolving customer needs, we must remain intentional in how we attract, retain, and develop talent; creating a more inclusive environment that leverages diversity effectively. At Huntington, we are committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Diversity in our workplace, community outreach, and in our suppliers/vendors is every colleague’s responsibility. As colleagues, we must model inclusive behaviors, show respect, and have an appreciation of differences.

Every colleague contributes to the organization with their own collection of talents and a multitude of experiences and dimensions of diversity. By embracing each colleague’s uniqueness, our core value of inclusion comes to life; and our commitment to inclusion is our commitment to you. We want you to feel valued, respected, and heard because we know that each of our differences adds value to the organization.

We support the fundamental principles of human rights across all our business activities. Huntington’s respect for the protection and preservation of human rights is guided by the principles set forth in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion reflects an understanding and acceptance of diverse points of view, abilities, backgrounds, and experiences. This commitment applies to every aspect of our business, and we firmly stand against discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political opinions, speech, or affiliations, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local laws.

Appreciating these rich differences is how we cultivate the best ideas and develop the best innovations for making Huntington the country’s leading People-First, Digitally Powered Bank.

All managers are responsible for complying with federal affirmative action regulations.
