Synovus Hosts Second Annual Diversity Symposium

Synovus recently hosted a two-day Diversity Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. The symposium is a branding and recruiting event for undergraduates to learn about our company, culture, early talent job opportunities, and developmental programs, such as Accelerated Banker and Corporate Summer Internship.

Over 20 students from universities in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina attended. They heard from and interacted with President and CEO Kevin Blair and Chief Human Resources Officer Sharon Goodwine. The keynote speaker, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and State Farm Arena Melissa Proctor, shared lessons learned throughout her career progression and guiding principles of life. In addition, students received tips on financial wellness, networked with other Synovus team members from all levels across the organization and participated in interviews to secure a spot in our developmental programs.
