Our vision.

We pledge to create an environment where every employee can bring their authentic self to work and know that their unique background, ethnicity, experiences, perspective, and contributions serve to strengthen us and where growth opportunities exist at all levels.

For our customers and community, we strive that you see through our actions that we value each of you and know we are better together. We move forward challenging ourselves to live this vision every day.

Activating our vision.

We’ve created internal programs and assigned resources to help drive the change and growth we strive for as an organization.

Strategic areas of focus.

Our DEI council identified four strategic areas of focus:

DEI Council.

The DEI Council was formed in 2020 led by John Barkidjija, Head of CRE & Specialty Finance, and Dana Traci, Chief Human Resources Officer, serving as co-executive sponsors along with a diverse cross-section of Bank employees to drive DEI initiatives, achieve key goals and enact change.

Employee resource groups.

Employee-led ERGs take center stage within our Workplace priorities with a focus on creating a supportive and safe space to grow and develop at Byline.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) include:

  • Women Empowered by Byline (WEBB)
  • Black ERG
  • Latinx ERG
  • Asian ERG
