Resources and Partnerships

Resources and Partnerships

Women's Inclusion Network

Our Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) plays a key role in SMBC’s rapid growth by helping us to maximize our human capital. WIN works in partnership with senior management and Human Resources to create a positive environment for women and to cultivate talented women in leadership roles. By empowering women, WIN becomes a driving force for diversifying the talent pool at the foundation of SMBC’s sustainable success. WIN is targeted to women, but as an inclusive network, it reaches out to both men and women to help them reach their full career potential. The WIN Advisory Board is made up of representatives from senior management and the banking industry in general and supports WIN in its drive for excellence.

NIJI Pride Network

The mission of NIJI Pride, our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Supporter/Ally (“LGBTA”) Inclusion Network, is to create an open and welcoming workplace for all employees of SMBC, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. The network’s goal is to help foster an environment that allows everyone to reach their full potential and allows SMBC to demonstrate its vision of inclusion and diversity both internally and externally. This enhances SMBC’s image in the market and improves our ability to attract and retain high-quality, motivated individuals who will add value to the organization.
