Inclusion and Diversity

FNBO is committed to belonging, inclusion, diversity and equity. This is demonstrated by Impact by FNBO, our community and social responsibility program, working in tandem with our internal inclusion and diversity efforts to foster social and economic success for all of our stakeholders.

We are committed to intentionally and proactively creating pathways to success for historically underrepresented populations, regardless of but not limited to their age, race, color, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or military status.  To accomplish this:

We Support by partnering with and empowering nonprofit organizations that break down barriers to economic and social opportunities; making impact investments in programs that target historically underrepresented communities; and working closely with our Belonging and Inclusion employee group to make contributions in programs that proactively advance belonging, inclusion and equity.

We Bank and We Finance by increasing access to the financial tools, advice and guidance, and community experiences that will help individuals improve their financial futures, especially those often left out of the financial system.

We Employ, fostering a culture of belonging and inclusion so that every employee is valued, and has opportunity and the ability to make an impact.  FNBO strives to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve in the makeup of our workforce.

We Buy, actively supporting small businesses in our communities by purchasing from them, in particular those owned by underrepresented populations.

Belonging and Inclusion is a BIG Deal

At FNBO, we strive to host a workplace culture where employees of all backgrounds feel valued and see opportunity realized—where everyone can be their authentic and whole self, in any role at any time, and never doubt that they’re part of our Great Big, Small Bank. One important way we advance this work is through BIG—our Belonging and Inclusion Group. Open to all FNBO employees, BIG runs internal awareness campaigns, hosts events intended to foster greater belonging, and serves as a platform where all employees can speak as one about how they would like to see belonging realized at FNBO.

Through BIG, FNBO is proud to celebrate many different identities with our employees throughout the year, building upon work done in the past while also breaking a lot of new ground. These internal observances include Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Military Appreciation Month, LGBT+ Pride Month, Women’s Suffrage, Juneteenth, and many others. And BIG also celebrates events and holidays that are important to our employees like Diwali, Hanukkah, Lunar New Year, Easter, Ramadan, and more.
