Meet Clara Green, Head of DEI at Regions

“As we raise expectations and move our team’s performance to a higher plane you will see an increased focus on the strategic importance of diversity and inclusion. Our customer base, and our markets are very diverse, and our teams should reflect that diversity. Inclusion is about making sure that everyone has a seat at the table and importantly, an opportunity to be heard. We have a great culture, but we can strengthen it by improving our diversity and creating a more inclusive work environment. I am confident our efforts will be rewarded with even better business results.”
