As a Certified B Corporation, Mascoma Bank strives “to be a force for positive change.” As a company focused on the value of mutual respect and trust, we recognize that by embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion, we strengthen our communities and ourselves. We are a better, smarter, and more innovative bank when we welcome different perspectives, experiences, and approaches. We understand that this focus will position us to provide our customers with products and solutions that best meet their needs.

Our Board of Directors and leadership team strive to create an environment where team members are valued, empowered to positively support our customers and business objectives, and are appreciated for their individual and group contributions. We believe a truly inclusive culture leads to a sense of belonging and support for all team members. We achieve this by recruiting and retaining a diverse talent pool, increasing team member engagement through professional development and community outreach activities, and offering personal growth workshops and team-building opportunities.

We believe that individuals enhance our culture because of their identity or differences, such as: race, ethnicity or nationality; socio-economic class; age or generation; ablebodiedness or accessibility needs; gender, gender identity and expression; sexual orientation; religion and worship practices; education or matriculation status; veteran or military service status; family or caregiver responsibilities; personal appearance; genetic information; political affiliation; work, thought, and leadership styles; and/or technical skills. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach, providing equal opportunity for employment and advancement. We are also committed to treating our customers equitably.
