Welcome to The Bolder Banking Podcast. As you know, The Graduate School Of Banking at Colorado is committed to sharing bolder ideas and bolder perspectives from industry leaders.
During this year’s Annual School Session, students had the opportunity to nominate fellow students who are demonstrating these bolder ideas and perspectives.
In this episode, we are featuring one of those nominees, Melissa Payne. Melissa is Vice President, Service Center and Virtual Banking at MidWestOne Bank. We were joined on the podcast by Ana Maria Senica, First Vice President, Regional Retail Manager, also of MidWestOne Bank.
We know you will enjoy this episode in which Melissa and Ana Maria share MidWestOne Bank’s initiative called R.I.S.E., which stands for Retention, Innovation, Support, Empowerment. They also have an initiative called Women of R.I.S.E. The focus of these groups is to talk about diversity, share ideas and make certain the bank is opening doors for all employees to help them move forward in their careers.
