Diversity, equity and inclusion
At Webster Five, we support an inclusive culture by acknowledging the unique experiences and perspectives each individual brings to our bank. This kind of culture is key to creating an exciting environment where customers want to do business and our team members want to work.
We are dedicated to nurturing a work environment where employees can feel accepted and valued for their diverse backgrounds and are able to bring their true selves to work every day. By embracing the richness of our unique perspectives, we are working to create a better, more rewarding place for our employees to work and ensuring we reflect the customers and communities we serve.
On February 3, 2020, Webster Five became the first Worcester County based bank to join a growing coalition pledging to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. One of more than 900 CEOs that have come together for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, our President and CEO, Donald Doyle, committed himself and the bank to fostering an environment that embraces differences and acknowledges the challenges that can be caused by preconceptions and unconscious bias related to race, gender and disabilities.
In April 2021, CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion is marking its third Day of Understanding – a dedicated time created to have candid conversations about diversity, inclusion and belonging within organizations and our communities. On Thursday, April 8th, Webster Five will join companies across the United States and hold our first annual Day of Understanding. Our DEI Committee and Senior Management Team will meet to explore and look deeper into how we can become better allies to support a more inclusive organization. The goal of these discussions is to further cultivate diversity, equity and inclusion conversations, embrace differences and increase our understanding. By encouraging these conversations, we are working to help empower our employees to be champions of change on these difficult, crucial issues.
