"As a director in the Bank's internal audit department, I have the privilege of working with colleagues from across the Bank and the System. This enables me to have a unique perspective with deep knowledge of the Boston Fed and the Federal Reserve System as a whole.

Social Impact Social Impact

Giving back through volunteering is important and valued at the Bank. Employees are provided with paid vacation time to support a vibrant community service program. A volunteer council organizes numerous opportunities for teams of employees to use their skills, talents, and passions to address local community needs. Employees volunteer in many capacities, from mentoring youth, to helping low-income residents claim tax benefits, to providing job readiness training.

Innovation Innovation

The Bank encourages employees to solve problems in creative ways. It is an innovative workplace! Its products, services, and business models are continually evolving and being tested. Some of the Bank’s most innovative initiatives – from new services for local banks and the federal government, to the Working Cities Challenge – have been created by employees who have stretched the boundaries of the Federal Reserve’s “traditional” roles and responsibilities. The current trends in FinTech, consumer payments, demographics, and labor markets offer plenty of opportunities to find new ways to do things, and the Bank is diligent about staying connected with the dynamic innovation community in Greater Boston.

Environmental Responsibility Environmental Responsibility

At the Boston Fed, sustainability is in our DNA: elements of energy conservation are evident in the very design of our building. With a track record of environmental leadership in the Federal Reserve System and in the local business community, we are committed to reducing the impact of our operations on the environment through initiatives that integrate sustainable practices and utilize industry knowledge, technology, and innovation.

The Real Estate Services Group’s sustainability program provides a strategic framework for the Bank’s efforts in support of responsible and proactive environmental stewardship. Our efforts include identifying and implementing systemic and operational changes focused on energy reduction and waste management, exploring nationally recognized certification opportunities, and continuing to share best practices and sustainable solutions with our partners in the System and our community.

We also engage with employees from the Bank and our tenant firms in sustainability-related efforts through Building Tomorrow, a building-wide green team which fosters a culture of sustainability through educational resources, events, and volunteer opportunities.
