    Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf apologized in a company-wide memo on Wednesday for twice blaming the bank's lack of employee diversity on a "very limited pool of Black talent." Scharf called his earlier statements, which he made in an email to workers in mid-June and then repeated on an employee Zoom call this summer, "insensitive" and a reflection of his "own unconscious bias." The memo, which Wells released Wednesday, also highlighted a number of Black executives who had been hired or recently promoted, as well as a list of efforts the company has taken to "improve diversity." "There are many talented diverse individuals working at Wells Fargo and throughout the financial services industry, and I never meant to imply otherwise," Scharf said in his message to employees.
