Comerica has an active veteran’s recruitment strategy, which is communicated regularly to human resources professionals, hiring managers and executives. Several veteran-specific strategies and practices to attract veteran talent include connecting with the Veteran Leadership Network ERNG and the Veteran Market Segmentation Initiative (MSI) team for veteran referrals, implementation of veteran-friendly job qualifications, and specific relationships with local and regional veteran representatives.
Comerica remains committed to the advancement of women within our organization and particularly within our departments working in technology. The technology sector has traditionally been a male-dominated sector, so we have created a focus on gender parity to help ensure women not only have equal opportunities but also to help ensure the realization of truly innovative products and services that gender diversity delivers.
