At Renasant Bank, we embrace diversity and strive for a culture of inclusiveness. We respect the rights and freedoms of all individuals, including our customers, employees, and shareholders, and we strongly disagree with and oppose actions that are unjust on any level.
The tragedies that have occurred recently and not so recently to Black Americans in our nation are disheartening. These events and the outcry for change challenge every individual, company, and community to assess where we have been, where we are, and where we need to be. We stand firmly against racism as we do with any other form of discrimination and we genuinely sympathize with those who are hurting. As members of our communities, we believe that we have a responsibility not to remain silent but instead to help create change that fosters an environment of inclusion, equality, and justice.
We will continue to support community needs through meaningful partnerships and philanthropy with special emphasis on support for efforts that benefit educational parity and minority and female owned businesses.
On behalf of the board of directors, management, and all employees of Renasant, we remain committed to inclusion, respect, fairness, justice, and action in making a better future for all people. We do not have all of the solutions, but with courage and conviction, we are dedicated to listening to understand how we must engage to eliminate disparity and promote racial justice and civil liberty for all. Collectively, we are one people with one common objective – to be the financial services provider of choice in the communities we serve.
