Wells Fargo's vision: to satisfy all of their customersí financial needs, help them succeed financially, be the premier provider of financial services in every one of their markets, and be known as one of America's great companies.
And boy are they hitting the mark, especially with regard to the LGBT community. Wells Fargo ranks number 2 on The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for LGBT Employees list, and number 31 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies. Wells Fargo also has scored a perfect 100% on the HRC Corporate Equality Index for six years. Well known for its efforts to reach out to LGBT customers, the San Francisco-based financial services company offers its LGBT employees and their partners benefits equal to those of heterosexual partners. Its diversity training includes sexual orientation and gender-identity components.
"Wells Fargo has been an active supporter of GLSEN for the past three years because they believe in the important work that GLSEN is doing to assure that every student in all school communities feels safe, valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression," notes Dane Grams, GLSEN Development Director.
In fact, Wells Fargo has made education a centerpiece of their corporate philanthropy. According to Wells Fargo Executive, and GLSEN National Board Member Michelle Scales, "GLSENís mission is fundamental to the success of our communities, and Wells Fargo is committed to providing financial support and leadership to educational non-profits such as GLSEN that address pressing community needs. We believe that the education of our youth at an early age to respect and appreciate diversity is important to the future of our nation's vitality and success."
GLSEN is proud to have Wells Fargo as a National Corporate Partner at the Bronze level.
