Diversity and Inclusion at Huntington

D&I Strategy and Operating Plan


Diversity and inclusion are core to who we are and essential to what we do every day. That’s why we have incorporated inclusion as one of our core values. Our inclusion strategy serves as the framework, to guide and enable us to focus on four key areas:

  • Workforce: Attract, develop and retain talent from all backgrounds that reflects our communities.
  • Workplace: Create a culture of inclusion that is welcoming and open to all.
  • Community: Position Huntington as a Diversity & Inclusion leader and draw on our diverse talent and inclusive culture to win with our customers and communities.
  • Supplier Diversity: Drive economic inclusion in our supply chain in the communities we serve.
Through our Board of Directors Community Development Committee, our Executive Leadership Team, and our Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Council (DISC), we are holding ourselves accountable for creating and maintaining a culture of inclusion.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Council serves in an advisory role to ensure the alignment of diversity and inclusion initiatives with our business goals, our corporate values and the future of Huntington. The strategy, policy and direction of our work is set by our internal stakeholders and executed by the office of Diversity & Inclusion, and is supported at all levels of our organization.

Our 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 and inclusion. 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.

Appreciating these rich differences is how we cultivate the best ideas and develop the best innovations for making Huntington the best performing regional bank in the nation.

Our Commitment to Affirmative Action

Our policy of affirmative action facilitates the placement of qualified women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans at all levels of the organization. Through our affirmative action plans, we identify the good faith efforts the organization will take to achieve the appropriate representation of women and minorities in our workforce. All of our affirmative action plans include targeted research, recruitment, upward mobility initiatives, annual goals and timetables for women and minorities required by Executive Order 11246 and other federal, state and local affirmative action laws and regulations.

All managers are responsible for complying with federal affirmative action regulations. This includes complying with site-specific affirmative action plans and ensuring that there are no artificial barriers to the advancement of qualified women, minorities, veterans and people with disabilities anywhere in our company. These plans are monitored by senior management and developed annually.
