"Diversity is not just about meeting numbers and quotas for employment. It is going one step further. It is about including, learning and accepting other people. I have had the opportunity to live all over the United States, and I felt I knew what diversity meant. However, I found I had a lot more to learn through my service on the Old National Diversity Advisory Council. I thought I knew what to do and how to do it, but I have been challenged on several occasions. These challenges combined with my personal experiences enable me to provide input on diversity that I hope will make a lasting impression on others. Through my service on the Advisory Council, I also have made several new friends and acquaintances, and I cherish each and every one of them."

“To me, the objective of diversity is learning from others who are not the same, about dignity and respect for all. It's about creating workplace environments and practices that encourage learning from others by capturing the advantage of diverse perspectives. Since I work at an Old National near Southern Illinois University Carbondale, our associates assume the responsibility of helping new students, as well as international students from all over the world, learn how to manage a bank account for the first time. My experience on the job and as a member of the Old National Diversity Advisory Council helps me educate the students with dignity and respect. Last year our branch was selected to accept the Matricula Consular as identification at account opening. This allows me to reach out to an underserved community while helping them learn how to safely manage their money. I’m glad that my job at Old National enables me to promote diversity every day."

“I think my views on diversity can best be described in the following quote from Mohandas K. Gandhi, ‘I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stifled. I want all the cultures of all lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.’ It’s a quote that applies to the workplace too, because diversity not only involves how people perceive themselves, but also how they perceive others. Those perceptions affect our workplace interactions. As an employee of Old National, I was thrilled to be asked to join the Diversity Advisory Council and to be allowed to volunteer my time teaching financial literacy classes to less fortunate youth. As an Old National associate, a member of the Diversity Council and a volunteer, I’m able to help others see that the concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect.”
