Our diversity philosophy begins with a commitment to sustain a culture that encourages each employee to contribute at his/her fullest potential. Our philosophy is based on respect. It recognizes that while we have a great deal in common, we all bring unique perspectives and experiences to the Bank. In this context, our definition of diversity includes race, gender, age and ethnicity as well as socio-economic background, education, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, veteran status, physical abilities, and life experiences. Recognizing these additional dimensions of diversity ensures that we promote a culture that values, respects and embraces the unique experiences of all employees.
