Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation recognizes the pivotal role we play in fostering a regulatory ecosystem that is not only robust and efficient but also equitable and inclusive. Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is woven into the fabric of our mission, reflecting our dedication to serving the diverse needs of the residents of Vermont.

  1. Diverse Perspectives, Stronger Outcomes: A diverse team, representing myriad backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, is essential to our success. By embracing diversity, we enhance our ability to make well-informed decisions and address the complex challenges within our workplace and the broader financial landscape.
  2. Equity in Regulation: We are committed to fair and impartial regulation. Our policies and practices are designed to ensure equal access to financial services and insurance products. We actively engage with diverse communities and stakeholders to ensure that our regulatory practices are responsive to the evolving needs of the public. We are mindful of historic inequities with respect to access to credit, insurance and financial markets and are committed to addressing these inequities.
  3. Continuous Progress: We understand that fostering an inclusive environment requires continuous education, effort, and awareness. We are committed to providing resources and training to deepen our understanding, to promote a culture of lifelong learning and to conduct this work on an ongoing basis.     

Together, we advance a vision of financial regulation that is not only effective but also equitable, just and inclusive.
