Teshia Levy-Grant, Senior Vice President, leads the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) office for Webster Bank. Working closely with our Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, she oversees the Bank’s efforts to promote a diverse workforce in an open, inclusive environment. Our DEI focus is a natural outgrowth of our Webster Way values: Acting with responsibility, respect, ethical behavior, citizenship and teamwork.
She is responsible for expanding Webster’s diversity programs and partnerships within our local communities. Webster’s DEI program seeks to broaden the reach of the bank’s efforts and ensuring they are integrated into all aspects of business. Having served many years in academia focused on educational programs, she also is focusing on expanding Webster’s education and training programs, which include how to work on and manage diverse teams. She oversees our DEI Council and as well as our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) for the company.
In addition, Teshia is supporting our efforts to strengthen the Bank’s internship and early-career rotational programs to ensure we are offering different experiences and unique perspectives to the Bank’s early professional development program.
