Supporting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are foundational not only to the work that we do, but who we are as an organization. We constantly strive to ensure that our staff represents the communities that we serve and has the training to understand complex societal issues so that we can create lasting, impactful solutions.
Bringing our “Whole Selves” To Work
We bring our whole selves to work. All of our backgrounds. All of our experiences. The things that we are passionate about. The things that make us who we are every day. We bundle those things together and deploy that into the work that we do each and every day. This is what creates our unique culture and imbues a sense of pride in everything that we do.
Standing Shoulder-To-Shoulder With Communities
We believe that every community has the potential to be a strong, vibrant place of opportunity. Fueled by our shared norms and values, our team works shoulder-to-shoulder with our community partners to harness the spirit of innovation and help ensure that all people can break the barriers to success.
As a mission-driven organization, our core values serve as the foundation of the work we do each and every day. They shape our culture. They underlie our decisions and actions. They guide our relationships with borrowers, partners, investors, and the communities we serve.
Our values inspire us to do our best every day to achieve our mission and vision.

Our Team in Action
Solving Systemic Issues through Partnership & Innovation
Even though we are a financial institution, we must not forget our commitment to social and economic justice. In this video, Capital Impact’s President and CEO Ellis Carr speaks to our national efforts to build partnerships with communities and key stakeholders to build thoughtful and innovative programs that break barriers to success.
Looking to our Values to Drive
Innovation is an important tool for organizations as they work to address issues of social, racial, and economic justice. Traditional thinking, however, is no longer enough. That is why, as a mission-driven organization, we look to our values to drive our work, ensure that we are true to our communities, and turn bold thinking into brave action.
Addressing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Internally
As individuals, professionals, and members of our community, we apply our own identity and personal narrative to our actions and convictions. Knowing that these factors influence how we work, we actively engage staff through training and workshops to ensure that we understand how our own values, experiences, and privilege influence the decisions that we make.
Staying Connected to Our Communities
Once a year we bring our entire team together to explore a community that we work in and lend our time to a local volunteer effort. We also take time to discuss strategy, recognize milestones, and celebrate our core values award winners. It is an opportunity to reset and recharge as we look to creating impact in the coming year.
