COMPANY FAC TS
Successfully merging two corporate cultures is never easy, but the union of Wells Fargo and Wachovia was definitely one made in diversity-management heaven. Both compa- nies had a long history on this list and had different, and complementary, diversity-management strengths.
The new Wells Fargo is an improving diversity company, led by
Pat Crawford, senior vice president, head of diversity and inclusion.
The rejuvenated executive diversity council, chaired by Chairman,
President and CEO John Stumpf, is improving its methods of holding
people accountable for diversity goals and measuring diversity success. The Wells Fargo board is diverse as well. The 15-member board
has four women and one Black, one Latino and one Asian member.
Wells Fargo continues to be a leader in its outreach to multicultural communities, especially the Asian, Latino and LGBT community. Using social media and other marketing techniques, the bank has
made strong inroads to these communities, and more than 36 percent
of its advertising budget goes to multicultural media.
Wells Fargo has a long history of philanthropy to multicultural nonprofits, including GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight
Education Network), the American Foundation for the Blind,
DesertArc, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
