Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are integral to The Bancorp culture. As our Values Statement makes clear: “We encourage a spirit of collaboration while striving to create a diverse team where everyone treats each other with dignity and respect.” These core values start at the top, with the full support of our Board of Directors, and extend throughout the rest of the company. Every day, we work to cultivate an inclusive culture that inspires employees to engage, live The Bancorp Values and bring their best selves to work.
We endeavor to attract, develop, promote and maintain a high-performing, talented workforce that, at all levels, reflects the diversity of the customers we serve and the communities in which we work and live. We invest in our employees’ personal and professional growth through formal learning and training, Employee Resource Groups and health and wellness programs.
