We're committed to providing trusted financial solutions to meet our customers' needs including a suite of socially conscious products and services such as our MyBanker program which provides personalized concierge-level banking services for everyone, regardless of income and at no cost. Berkshire is also committed to working to address racial and gender equity, taking steps to enhance the diversity of its workforce by implementing the Massachusetts Equal Pay Act company-wide and launching the Power of Women Employee Resource Group. These efforts, along with many others have increased representation of women in our workforce to 69% and 53% in manager roles.

We share our performance through our annual Corporate Responsibility Report, Leading the Way Forward.
