LOS ANGELES, October 3, 2011 – Union Bank, N.A., announced today that it is ranked ninth by Hispanic Business Magazine in the publication’s annual listing of the Best Companies for Diversity, up from the twelfth position last year. The selection is determined by more than 30 variables measuring a company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion as it relates to hiring, promotions, marketing, corporate philanthropy and supplier diversity.

“At Union Bank, diversity and inclusion is one of our overarching values, and this recognition is an honor for us,” said Vice President of Corporate Diversity and Inclusion Tisa Jackson. “We will continue to work on ensuring doors are open and relationships are built within our vibrant and diverse local communities.”

Union Bank’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in the composition of the board of directors of its holding company, UnionBanCal Corporation. UnionBanCal Corporation’s board of directors is comprised of more than 50 percent women and people of color. Also, more than half of Union Bank’s senior leaders are women or people of color.

Union Bank supports multiple Hispanic chambers of commerce and Hispanic-focused charitable organizations, annually it awards two percent of its after-tax earnings to non-profits through the bank and the Union Bank Foundation to many charitable and community organizations among them: NAACP, Boys & Girls Clubs, Para Los Niños, TELACU, USC Latino Alumni Association, Central American Resource Center, and Hispanic Scholarship Fund.
