First and foremost, you need diversity—of all types and at all levels of the company. It’s a business imperative for the survival of all businesses. It impacts access to the best talent, best customers and best market share.

Next, the diversity must “mix” and work well together for the team and the company to achieve their goals. We work best on teams with people who are like us and have similar goals. That does not mean they have to look like us or come from the same background, schools or communities we do.

This is where the hard part comes in. Finding affinity - similarities – with someone who, at a glance, is very different from us takes the courage to have a conversation. And, to be candid, the courage to spend time in different environments and circles, formally and informally, in the company and in the community. It also takes the courage to be uncomfortable, which can be painful. But that’s the only way we grow ourselves and our relationships. And ultimately, it’s the only way to really be inclusive.

First Horizon recognizes that success for diversity and inclusion is best achieved when it is integrated into the daily operations of business. Our company does not isolate diversity and inclusion as a separate initiative; rather, we seek to continuously incorporate diversity and inclusion into our overall culture and all business efforts to drive enterprise-wide impact.


At First Horizon, diversity is a business imperative. We know that leveraging the power of diversity and inclusion (D&I) through our three strategic pillars – workforce, workplace and marketplace – is significant in order for us to meet our desire to build a culture of inclusion that fosters innovation, while maximizing business results.
