CINCINNATI, July 10, 2024 /3BL/ - Fifth Third Bank’s Stephanie A. Smith, chief inclusion officer, and Jada Grandy-Mock, chief community impact banking officer, have been named to Women We Admire’s top female executives lists. Women We Admire is a fast-growing professional women’s network and reaches more than 32,000 individuals and businesses.

Smith was named to Women We Admire’s Top 50 Women Leaders of Ohio for 2024 list, adding to recent honors such as Savoy Magazine’s Most Influential Executives in Diversity and Inclusion and paving the way for Fifth Third’s inclusion as one of America’s Top Corporations for Women-Owned businesses by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council in 2023.

Smith is responsible for creating and executing a holistic internal and external strategy to drive inclusion efforts for Fifth Third’s employees and communities. She oversees the bank’s 64 regional and nine enterprise business resource groups, its Project SEARCH initiative, supplier diversity, volunteerism, and strategic inclusion work related to environment, social and governance reporting. In her previous role as Director of Supplier Diversity and Inclusion, Smith oversaw more than a 900% increase in Fifth Third’s spending with diverse suppliers.

Grandy-Mock was named to Women We Admire’s Top 25 Chief Community Officers of 2024 list for developing and executing strategies that engage and connect companies, organizations and institutions with the communities they serve. Women We Admire said, “It takes a talented leader to adequately promote social responsibility and address community needs while enhancing brand reputation.”

Grandy-Mock’s leadership was instrumental in Fifth Third’s efforts to achieve an “outstanding” Community Reinvestment Act rating and to strengthen communities by implementing innovative, comprehensive community development strategies and partnerships. She also played a key role in establishing and executing the Bank’s $32 billion five-year Community Commitment in 2016 and its place-based Neighborhood Investment Program, which recently surpassed the original $180 million financial commitment in the second year of the three-year program.
