GENDER EQUALITY STATEMENT
MTB aspires to be a top employer of the best talent. For us, being a top employer means creating the right conditions for our people to succeed, to challenge and enable them to do their best work and reward them for doing so, to value their unique perspectives and contributions, and to empower them to thrive on both the national and global stage. Gender equality is a key factor in achieving this goal and is a priority in our global diversity and inclusion strategy.
MTB is focused on engaging women and men across the organization to attract, develop and retain women at all levels. Our commitment to gender equality is evidenced at every level of the bank, from our Board through our senior leadership to our new hires.
MTB also sees diversity as a prerequisite for maintaining a healthy and innovative working environment, and we, at MTB, believe it is important to cultivate a staff profile as diverse as possible without discriminating based on gender.
