Amegy Bank LGBTQ+ group making it’s mark on Houston
Partnering with the Greater Houston LGBT Chamber of Commerce has allowed their group to promote DEI initiatives outside their bank walls.
HOUSTON — As a part of the “Our Story Our History” June series focusing on Pride month, KHOU 11 got up close and personal with one LGBTQ + allies group at Amegy Bank.
This group shares how they are not only changing lives in the Houston community but the lives of their employees too. KHOU 11’s Ugochi Iloka was invited to sit in on Amegy Bank’s recent LGBTQ+ business resource group meeting.
There were a lot of laughs as members shared good times and new ideas.
“Our group is strongly supported by allies, not just people who identify,” one member said.
Their BRG gets together to not only promote diversity within the company but in the community too by participating in food bank events, homeless shelter volunteer work, and so much more.
“Our main focus at the beginning was focusing on the community. So, getting our banks branding outside in the community,” Amegy Bank LGBTQ+ BRG Co-chair Kenrick Jacobs said.
And it worked.
