Diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging (DEIB)

Oportun has always been a company with employees from many different backgrounds but this year, our company has made a powerful commitment to making sure we are the most diverse, equitable, inclusive company where we all feel we belong.

I’ve really enjoyed working at Oportun because it is like a diversified family where you feel safe, happy, and proud.

Oportun’s DEIB Council

In 2020, we launched the Oportun DEIB Council, a representative group of employees who work together to build an equitable and inclusive environment at Oportun that advances diversity, values individuals, and provides support through advocacy and programming.

Over the years, I’ve experienced firsthand the unity and commitment of Oportun family to foster a culture where we all can thrive. This is the fundamental reason why I’m part of Oportun and of the DEIB council. I cannot wait to see where this movement takes us.
