Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity is strength. We’re better together.
At Pacific Western Bank, we build teams and grow talent that reflects the diversity of the clients and communities we serve. Here, everyone is valued.
We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion where differences are both appreciated and respected. Diversity of background, experience and perspective adds value and depth to our teams and creates better business results. Our strategic approach to diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do for our clients, employees, communities and shareholders, and it is critical to our company’s success.
We take pride in building a workplace culture where all employees feel supported and respected, and have equal access to career and development opportunities without regard to race, religion/creed, color, national origin, age, marital status, ancestry, sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical conditions), gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, veteran status, physical or mental disability, medical condition, military status, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws.

I am pleased to share the immediate steps Pacific Western Bank is taking to combat racism and inequality. We recognize that sustainable change will take time; however, it is important that our Bank take immediate action to contribute to that change today.
