The Bank's values—integrity, excellence, and respect—are a clear statement supporting the notion that every employee is an important part of the Atlanta Fed's story and success.

We value our diversity, considering it to be a competitive asset, and cultivate different perspectives, fresh ideas, and relationships. The Bank demonstrates its commitment to diversity and inclusion, in part, through its support of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion, the Diversity Advisory Council, and eight employee-led Employee Resource Networks. The Atlanta Fed evaluates all managers on their competence in managing diverse teams and practicing inclusion in achieving objectives. All staff members receive education and training in embracing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

Ensuring a respectful workplace enriches the Bank and helps us maintain our position as a high-performing organization. We expect every employee to model the utmost professionalism and fairness by consistently communicating and behaving in a respectful manner.
