Community Bank System, Inc. Diversity Council

The Community Bank System, Inc. (CBSI) Diversity Council grew from the ground up. Once the seed was planted, one person raised a hand to foster it, and then another and another. Before long, more than 100 team members volunteered to serve as Diversity Council members. The passion to support this initiative was obvious before it even had a name.

Now, the CBSI Diversity Council includes 23 members and 83 ambassadors, all serving as representatives of our more than 3,000 employees. They are the eyes, the ears and, more importantly, the voices of the community that is our company.

Our Mission is to put faces and names to the concepts of diversity and inclusion. We are here to make sure no one feels unheard, unseen or uninvited. Through that effort, we’ll foster a culture that doesn’t just accept diversity, but values it. 

Monthly Spotlight

April is World Autism Month, which shines a light on the opportunities available to people with autism and their families. More than that, it’s a time to increase the public’s understanding and acceptance of people with autism. We support and celebrate our team members who are personally connected to loved ones with autism.

Committed to Doing What’s Right

The events of 2020 re-energized our commitment to culture by focusing it on our responsibility to foster equality and equity. We’re looking to our company’s culture—one that we’re already proud of—and we’re giving it new purpose to make it even better.

Celebrating Diversity Year-Round
Because Everyone Can Dream Big

For the fourth time, we sponsored the Dream Big 5k race, an annual fundraiser for EDD Adaptive Sports, which is a non-profit organization dedicating to creating sports programs for individuals with disabilities. The organization aims for every athlete to experience success on the field, whether through developing a new skill or scoring a goal, and we’ve been proud to support it with volunteers, donations and participation in the event.

‘Fair Housing’ Is More Than Just Words

The Fair Housing Act was enacted on April 11, 1968 with the goal of eliminating racial segregation and ending housing discrimination in the United States. This critical legislation prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, and disability, and commits recipients of federal funding to affirmatively further fair housing in their communities. That’s why we celebrate Fair Housing Month every April and fight for it year-round.
