Our DEI&B Team

Paloma Sarkar

First Vice President, Enterprise Risk Management and Strategic Planning

Diversity is more than just differences in races, it is the acceptance of all people despite their experiences and walks of life including gender, race, ability and all things that make us unique human beings. I am a part of this committee because having differences matters and it is only through these differences that we can begin to see changes and other perspectives that will ultimately create a better world. 

Stacey Morse

HR Specialist-Employment & Retention

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee here at Pathfinder Bank is so important because it allows for each of our employees to have equal opportunities to do their best, learn, grow, and feel valued. Our culture of belonging is one that I am proud to be a part of, and I want all of our colleagues to feel that way too.

Jordan Chang

We all come from diverse backgrounds and deserve to feel valued and included. I joined this initiative to provide others the feeling of inclusion, and to be a positive light in our community.

Kylie Wyman

It's important to foster a culture of togetherness where every voice is valued and included. Embracing diversity isn't just something that we 'should' do, it's something we absolutely have to do. I'm proud to be part of an initiative to create an environment where everyone can thrive, no matter who they are.
