Team Member Networks

Wells Fargo has Team Member Networks that align with our company's strategy and are devoted to professional growth and education, community outreach, recruiting and retention, supporting business development, and customer insight.

Each Network is organized by individuals connected by a shared background, experience, or other affinity.

Below are quotes from members of the nine networks:

Latin Connection — Serving Hispanic customers

Latin Connection has a goal: educate team members about reaching the growing Hispanic population.

"Hispanics are the number one growing population in the U.S. It's very important to understand the culture so we can better serve the population." says Leo, a computer operations analyst in Minneapolis.


Asian Connection — Connecting with Asian communities

Wells Fargo has a long history of serving Asian Americans, dating back to the 1850s when the company's stagecoaches delivered communications, family, and friends between Chinese settlers' communities.

"Despite our diverse geographies, we all have a core mission to share experiences and information with Asian American team members and work with the Asian American community," says Grace, a business banker in Des Moines.


Middle East Team Member Network — Promoting Cultural Awareness

Cultural awareness is a theme for the events hosted by Wells Fargo’s Middle East Team Member Networks.

"Our main goal is to increase awareness and educate both the public and Wells Fargo team members about our culture and experiences," says Mona, a personal banker in San Francisco. "Our members are the bridge that connects Wells Fargo to the Middle East community for future business opportunities."

Among other things, the group sponsors sign language classes and an annual Disability Awareness Day for all team members.

"Our goal is to increase team member awareness of disabilities issues through education and communication," says David, statements work director in Denver, "The ultimate goal is to promote career advancement and equal participation for all team members."


Black/African American Connection —Celebrating African American history

Each February, Wells Fargo’s Black/African American Connection hosts African American History Month events across the nation – from Alaska to California to Maryland.

Says LaTrina, a Phone BankSM representative in Westlake, Texas, "These celebrations acknowledge the contributions African Americans have made to society and help foster a sense of pride within our company and connect Wells Fargo to our communities."


Native Peoples Team Member Network — Valuing the Native community

Wells Fargo’s Native Peoples Team Member Network gave $50,000 to support the Alaska Federation of Natives annual convention and Alaska Native Professional Association's career fair. Team members from the Native Peoples Team Member Network volunteered to support one of the largest events for Alaska's Native community.

Says Asta, community development representative in Anchorage, "The idea is to build unity, discuss issues, network with Alaska Native business leaders, and celebrate the cultures and traditions of our state's indigenous people.”


PRIDETeam Member Network (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) – Taking PRIDE in creating an inclusive environment

Wells Fargo has been given high marks when it comes to creating an inclusive environment. Over the past several years, advocacy groups such as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation, Gay Financial Network, The Advocate, and Lavender Magazine have awarded Wells Fargo for being a great place to work.
"PRIDE provides an opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender team members to build personal and professional networks across the organization and take on leadership roles," says David, a business systems consultant in Tempe.


Women's Team Member Network — Women working together to serve a greater good

At Wells Fargo, women make up more than half of our company’s workforce. The Women’s Team Member Network is an inclusive organization that provides personal/professional development, business development and community outreach opportunities for its members and the communities it serves.

"Our members have opportunities to connect; empower themselves and others; network; participate; and learn more about issues affecting women in the community and the company. We're here to make a difference," says Shelley, a brand education consultant in Charlotte.


Veterans' Team Member Network – Supporting those who serve our country

Wells Fargo received the national 2011 Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Freedom Award for its support of team members who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. This is the highest honor given by the Department of Defense.

"To be one of 15 companies nationwide to receive this award is quite an honor and a testament to Wells Fargo's outstanding support of its team members who serve in the Guard and Reserve," says Rob, Market Growth and Development Consultant in St. Louis.
