Our goal is to create a workplace where the best talent seeks employment. We know that diversity in the workforce will support our mission of helping people to be successful. A diverse workforce will help by connecting us to a wider customer base, enhancing our community relations and enriching our pipeline of new ideas and approaches to customer service. Comerica is committed to ensuring a diverse workforce, inclusive of those who possess different ancestries, races, colors, religions, genders, national origins, ages, physical and mental abilities, medical conditions, veteran status, marital status, heights, weights, sexual orientations and gender identities. We actively recruit through a variety of diverse networks for the best candidates and provide a comprehensive benefit program reflecting the diverse needs of our employees.

We are committed to becoming the financial services provider of choice in the diverse communities we serve. We are especially proud of our marketing initiatives focused on the African American, Hispanic, Asian American, Arab and Chaldean American and women's markets. Consistent with our core business focus on relationship banking, our objective in these initiatives is to increase customer access to experienced colleagues who understand the unique needs, perspectives and opportunities of individuals and businesses in these market segments.
We take pride in the support we provide to our multi-cultural communities. We know that by building strong communities, our company will grow stronger. We are proud to be a partner of choice in our communities. We support numerous programs and projects for housing, economic development, cultural and civic organizations, health and education. In addition to financial resources, our colleagues contribute their time and expertise to support many community organizations.
Education is a foundation for the success of our communities and consequently, our business. We enhance our schools' academic curriculum with supportive programs. In addition, we distribute programs that focus on increasing financial literacy across all ages in all of our communities. Many colleagues volunteer personally to conduct these programs in our communities.
