Fifth Third Bank has announced that it is a proud legacy sponsor of the 2014 National Urban League Conference.
(CINCINNATI) The event will take place in the Bank’s headquarters of Cincinnati from July 23-26 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The 2014 conference, which is titled “One Nation Underemployed: Bridges to Jobs and Justice,” will convene political, business and community leaders to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act while confronting record job losses with strategies and actionable plans for recovery and economic empowerment for all.
“We could not be more proud or excited about being an integral part of the 2014 National Urban League Conference in our home city,” said Vice President Camino Smith, a speaker at the conference’s Education Summit and director of Community & Economic Development at Fifth Third Bank. “Fifth Third is a leader in financial empowerment for individuals of all ages and we are breaking new ground in the reemployment space by helping our out-of-work customers find jobs. Our sponsorship of this conference is enabling us to demonstrate our deep commitment to the community and is an opportunity for us to more deeply engage in issues facing the African American community specifically.”
Fifth Third Bank will have a significant presence at the conference. The Company will have an active career fair booth for recruiting talent. Bank employees will conduct workshops on its financial empowerment resource for small businesses called SmallBizU. Additionally, Fifth Third’s Financial Empowerment Bus – a 40-foot retrofitted city bus transformed into a mobile financial classroom on wheels – will be a key attraction at the conference expo on Thursday, July 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, July 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, July 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fifth Third professionals will be onboard the bus to provide conference guests with financial resources and training as well as to provide access to top quality financial services.
