Signature Bank Gave Lecture on Gender Pronouns 6 Months Before Collapse
Get woke, go broke.
Six months before its collapse, Signature Bank chairman Scott Shay hosted a “know your pronouns” company seminar during which employers were lectured on how to pronounce “gender-neutral pronouns” such as “Ze” and “Hir”.
Maybe they should have been concentrating on more important matters.
Signature Bank was seized by the feds on Sunday after the closure of Silicon Valley Bank prompted nervous customers to withdraw more than $10 billion in deposits, with the bank’s failure representing the third largest in U.S. financial history.
The “Know Your Pronouns” symposium was part of Signature Bank’s “Social Impact” series and also involved Finn Brigham, a Manhattan-based corporate consulate on gender issues who was described as a “genderqueer trans masculine person” during the event.
Referring to former Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), Shay bragged about how Signature Bank was “the first bank in the United States to have an openly gay man on our board.”
Staff were taught how to properly use the pronouns she, hers, he, his, they, them, ze, and hir by Brigham, who stated, “I don’t know if there’s anyone in the Signature Bank world, but probably you have clients that use ‘they’/’ them’ as pronouns. They’re gender-neutral pronouns on purpose.”
“‘Ze’ is another gender-neutral pronoun,,” he added. “The other part of that would be ‘hir’ — spelled H-I-R.”
Emphasizing its commitment to wokery, Signature Bank promoted “sustainability, diversity, equity, inclusion, community engagement, employee development, employee health and safety, and any other environmental, social, or governance-related initiatives.”
As we highlighted yesterday, Signature Bank wasted millions of dollars creating cringeworthy, woke music videos & TV shows about themselves, prompting critics to ask whether the cash could have been used more wisely elsewhere.
The bank’s commitment to regime narratives was also reinforced when it closed down Donald Trump’s accounts following the incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Maybe the lesson should be don’t put your money in woke banks, but given that virtually all of them are the same, that’s a difficult task to accomplish.
In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
