U.S. Bank Named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity List

May 8, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2019--U.S. Bank has been named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity List. Since 2001, the list has recognized companies for their exceptional commitment to diversity and inclusion. The list has evolved significantly since its inception, reflecting how rapidly companies are adapting diversity and inclusion strategies.
