Bank reaffirms commitment to equality in workplace
Sterling Bank has reaffirmed commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
The lender said it would continue to improve gender, ethnicity, persons with disabilities and generational diversity by strengthening processes and programmes to provide equal opportunities for all.
Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Abubakar Suleiman, said: “We will continue to prioritise our diversity, equity and inclusion agenda by creating equal working conditions, opportunities for promotion, and equal pay for work of equal value for women and men in the bank. I am proud of our achievements so far, but we are relentless.
“We remain committed to attracting, hiring, and developing diverse talents at all levels of our organisation as these are relevant factors that enable us to achieve our overall objectives.
“The bank has initiated programmes that include the Bloom Network, Sterling Women Development Programme (SWDP), Women in Banking, Girls in Tech, Women Techsters and Sterling Embrace to improve diversity.
“Through the programmes, efforts were made to eliminate the under-representation of women in all areas, especially in tech roles and leadership, and create expressions for persons with disabilities.”
The bank’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Temi Dalley, said: “Our affirmative action on diversity, equity, and inclusion is another example of Sterling Bank putting its values into action.
Our purpose is enriching lives, making it mandatory for us to build a sustainable, diversified, engaged, and equipped workforce that can deliver this mission.”
