ABA: The American Bankers Association

Black Banker Employee Resource Group

An ongoing cross-bank network for Black bankers and all bank professionals seeking to advance Black employees’ sense of belonging in the industry. At many larger firms, employee resource groups provide a space for groups of people who share a common identity to network and engage in professional development; ERGs also help with recruitment and retention of employees. 

However, since many Black bankers work in smaller organizations without access to other Black peers to share experiences, ask questions, to mentor and be mentored, ABA is exploring ways to support inclusion at an industry-wide level. This group meets on a bi-monthly basis for networking, professional development, and mentorship, and supports Black bankers in their careers.
