FNBO Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Statement

As we reflect on the challenges facing our world today, we have the opportunity and responsibility as an employer, bank, and community partner to advance the spirit of inclusion and belonging.  We are motivated by our longstanding belief in corporate social responsibility, where our actions influence the success of our employees, customers, and communities.  Until all are confident in the knowledge that they belong at our great big, small bank, our work is unfinished.

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.
