Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources

PA Bankers Association is committed to a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace, as well as helping our members to achieve their diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) goals. To accomplish this, we share our very own DEI statement, along with various resources for our members outlined below. We will update these resources as needed, so please check back regularly to see what is new.

PA Bankers' DEI Statement

We promote and encourage a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture that values and supports all voices across our organization. We are committed to expanding access and opportunity and to eliminating barriers. We will promote DEI proficiency to our member banks. We will do this by providing resources to support our members so they may develop and meet sustainable DEI goals.

DEI Advisory Group 

The DEI Advisory Group supports and advises the board and senior staff on the following items:
  • Establishing a sustainable DEI initiative for PA Bankers;
  • Ensuring a diverse and inclusive association board and organization;
  • Developing/facilitating DEI training for our members;
  • Developing, expanding and evaluating potential resources and partnerships that support our members’ recruitment, retention and advancement efforts;
  • Developing supplier diversity partnerships or resources to assist members with their supplier diversity efforts;
  • Evaluate metrics used to measure DEI efforts across the entire organization; and 
  • Other efforts and initiatives as needed. 

This group includes the current chairs (or their designee) of the Women in Banking and Emerging Leaders Committees, select banker representatives with diverse backgrounds, as well as others from outside of the organization with direct involvement in diversity & inclusion efforts within their organizations.


We are excited to announce our DEI roadmap is now available for all member banks! The roadmap, DEI TRACC – Taking Responsibility and Creating Culture, is a blueprint for member banks of all sizes to begin, refine and sustain effective DEI efforts. This guide outlines the various phases involved in establishing long-term sustainable change, as well as what strategic steps should be taken to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization. 

DEI TRACC is a tool designed to provide practical tools and resources for our member banks to use, and it is scalable based on the bank size and resources available.

We hope you find the actionable steps outlined throughout this guide to be useful regardless of where you are in your DEI journey.
