Diversity & Inclusion

We know we’re all richer together and this is why, at Prosperity Bank, diversity is strength and we’re committed to maintaining an inclusive organization.

Diversity Policy Statement

Prosperity Bank is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We are committed to including, integrating and serving individuals who represent different groups as defined by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, socioeconomic and family status, political affiliation, and national origin. This commitment can be seen throughout our bank, from our employees to our community outreach efforts.
Our associates bring a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences that are reflective of the communities and customers we serve. The unique capabilities and talents that our employees invest in their work represent a significant part of not only our culture but our reputation and achievements as well. We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences and diverseness.

Prosperity’s diversity practices form a foundation to our policies on recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development and training, promotions, transfers, and workforce reductions. The bank further administers all contractual relationships in a nondiscriminatory manner.

At Prosperity Bank, we are focused on supporting the communities we serve and creating a diverse and inclusive environment.
