Diversity + Inclusion
At bankHometown, the first of our Core Values is “Respect everyone.” We consider it more than just a statement. It’s a promise and a commitment that starts by encouraging and nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Our individual backgrounds, cultures, life experiences, and perspectives make each of us unique. Therefore, to be a successful community bank, we must represent and reflect those who live and work in the local communities we serve. That’s why we embrace and respect differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, pregnancy and pregnancy-related, and other characteristics. Doing so ensures that everyone feels valued and respected. And, it allows us all to express our ideas freely and to contribute our best work in delivering on the promise to unlock the potential of our employees, our customers, and our communities.
Partnering with organizations in our communities and providing support through employer and employee contributions help provide communities with resources to build an even greater level of understanding, dignity, and respect among its citizens. We’re proud of our long-standing commitment to making a real difference in the neighborhoods we serve—not just because it’s our responsibility, but because we believe it’s who we are.
Commitment to the Community.
Our dedication to the community is the cornerstone on which bankHometown was founded, and we carry that enduring tradition with us as we venture into each new neighborhood. From employees generously donating their time in the communities where they live and work, to the bank’s continued support of local non-profit, civic, and educational organizations, we pride ourselves on being an integral part of the community and a good neighbor.
