If there’s an organization that believes in advancing, supporting and empowering women, it’s Colorado’s largest locally owned bank. More than half the bank’s management roles – from assistant manager to executive – are occupied by women, and 66 percent of FirstBank’s employee-owned workforce are female. In 2017, FirstBank appointed Emily Robinson, a longtime employee, as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and continues to promote from within, enabling several of its women officers to grow into Senior Leadership positions.

“When anyone asks me for career advice, I always say:

 ‘Find an employer that does the right thing,’”

said Robinson.

FirstBank, which boasts the tagline “banking for good,” aims to do just that and equip employees with the tools and resources to progress their careers without compromising work-life balance. The company provides employees tuition reimbursement for higher education, pays for job related classes & training, offers parents additional paid time off for school events and allows eligible officers to work reduced hours (up to 10 years). It also recently launched its Women In Technology (WIT) program to help develop and mentor future women leaders while encouraging interest and advancement in technology-related careers for the company’s growing tech departments.
