Latin America's best bank for corporate responsibility 2019: Bancolombia

Awards for Excellence 2019

This year Bancolombia wins the award for the region’s best bank for corporate responsibility. Some 62% of Bancolombia’s employees are women and 57% of them are in leadership roles. These are some of the highest numbers for women in banking in the world. Why? 

“Because we need bankers who are detail-oriented and who care about our clients – these are qualities women have,” says Lina María Montoya Madrigal, impact and social innovation manager at Bancolombia.
