Diversity Statement from the Chairman
“At M&T we know that to reach our goal of becoming one of the best companies to work for in the nation, we must be committed to providing all employees with an inclusive professional environment - an environment where individual differences are respected and valued. By embracing diversity, M&T will be more effective in meeting the needs of its equally diverse employees, customers, shareholders and communities which will in turn promote a bottom line advantage.”
Robert G. Wilmers
The Value of Diversity
The demographics of the workplace are changing and will continue to change rapidly in the coming years. Almost every organization in the United States looks different than it did ten or more years ago - both in terms of whom the company employs and what positions employees hold.
These differences can mean substantial benefits for today's organizations. In fact, people of different backgrounds bring unique perspectives to the business challenges facing M&T. Greater diversity enhances our ability to innovate and, therefore, maintain a competitive edge. This ultimately benefits our employees, customers, shareholders, and the Bank.
