Supplier Diversity at M&T Bank

As a community bank, we actively work to include all our communities, striving to use a strong Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lens through all that we do.

It begins from within. 

Creating and executing our strategy — together. 

Our Vision

We believe in a more inclusive and representative society and economy, where the diversity of our suppliers reflects the diversity of our communities.

Our Mission

We strive to be the leading regional bank in reducing barriers to success and contributing to the growth of diverse businesses, starting by proactively seeking to increase our spend with a greater number of these businesses and gaining their trust as a customer and partner.

Our Key Objectives

  • Connect diverse suppliers in M&T’s communities with internal stakeholders who may benefit from their services
  • Provide data and clarity to internal stakeholders on how the diversity of their supplier pool is contributing to M&T’s overall supplier diversity
  • Seek out diverse supplier to participate in RFPs run by the Strategic Sourcing team

We are actively seeking to increase the number of firms we work with and the proportion of dollars we spend with businesses owned by people hailing from the following communities: 

People of color

Minority Business Enterprises, or MBEs


Women Business Enterprises, or WBEs

Members of the LGBTQ+ community

LGBT Business Enterprises, or LGBTBEs

People with disabilities

Disabled-Owned Business Enterprises, or DOBEs


Veteran Business Enterprises, or VBEs

If your business fits into these categories and can support a large company like M&T Bank, we want to explore a partnership. Register to join our Supplier Diversity Program >
