“We believe in, and are committed to, a culture of respect, equity and inclusion. Together, we are working across the entire firm — being intentional to strengthen our inclusive environment where our employees, customers and partners feel welcomed and valued in the communities where we do business. A company that is diverse, equitable and inclusive can better serve the world — and have generational impact. And that is good for everyone.” – Brian Lamb
JP Morgan Chase’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is evident in the structures and programming they have created to ensure an inclusive environment. The collaboration of JP Morgan’s inclusive Business Resource Group (BRG) network across regions is a testament to its commitment as over thirty percent of their employees across fifty-three are BRG members. These BRGs (which are available to all employees) enable JP Morgan’s employees to share ideas, grow professionally and connect with colleagues who have similar interests. Over the past year, awareness of structural racial inequity was heightened under the stress of the COVID pandemic. In response, JP Morgan have made a commitment to utilize their expertise in business, policy and philanthropy and commit $30 billion over the next five years to drive an inclusive recovery, support employees and break down barriers of systemic racism.
