ABA: The American Bankers Association
Skip Section Navigation

Women continue to be under-represented in the banking industry. ABA would like to help lead and inspire women in banking by providing resources and opportunities to network with their peers.



Inclusive Leadership

A diverse workforce is critical to the strength and vitality of our industry. Morgan Stanley’s Carla Harris joins fellow bank leaders Jim Edwards and Nancy Huntington Stager to share how inclusive leadership can positively influence the creation of a diverse team.

SourceMedia's Most Powerful Women in Banking

ABA is a gold sponsor of SourceMedia’s Most Powerful Women in Banking annual event. The rankings, selected by SourceMedia editors, highlight the professional achievements and business acumen of the industry's leading women.

Banks of all sizes can also nominate one or more women with senior status within their organizations. The nomination process is open in May each year. State associations can provide letters of support to members they may encourage to apply.
