Diversity and Inclusion

The diversity present in our workforce and community makes us a stronger Bank – not only for our employees and partners, but for our members.

In our minds, diversity and inclusion just makes sense. We know that when we combine our unique and different perspectives and backgrounds, great things happen. At FHLB Des Moines, we believe various cultures, thoughts, ideas and solutions deepen our insights and ultimately help us provide exceptional service to our members and community partners.

Making a Commitment

Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion starts with our leadership and funnels down into everything that we do at FHLB Des Moines. Below is our Board of Directors' official Commitment Statement to Diversity.

"The Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (the Bank) is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion among the Bank’s employees, directors and suppliers. We believe that differences in our employees enrich the work environment and greatly enhance the Bank’s ability to effectively fulfill its mission, live its values and meet the needs of the communities it serves."
