Diversity & Inclusion
Led by Vicki Fox, D&I officer, we are relentlessly focused on creating opportunity and dialogue with our employees to help shape our future D&I work and investing in community partners with the same goal. In 2022, we made significant investments in diverse workforce development both internally and through partnerships with BankWork$, EmployHER, Ohio Banker's League and others. We also have active African American, Proud Together (LGBTQIA) and Hispanic Heritage Connection employee resource groups.
In May, our CEO was awarded the inaugural Changemaker Award by the PA Bankers Association due to his commitment to advancing DE&I engagement throughout the PA Bankers membership.
Our D&I Statement: We believe in better.
We are on a journey to build a diverse workplace and an inclusive work environment. We value the perspectives of every one of our employees with intentional care given to those who might feel less represented based on their gender, race, age, abilities, sexual orientation and life experiences. Our company is more diverse today than a year ago, and our commitment is to keep getting better for ourselves, our partners and our communities.
