DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Councils & Employee Networks

Our employee network is made up of more than 200 chapters worldwide, and contains more than 60,000 employee members.

Fostering a diverse employee network

Our commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive environment starts at the top with our CEO Brian Moynihan, who chairs our Global Diversity & Inclusion Council. This group, composed of senior leaders from around the world, has created a culture that keeps diversity and inclusion at the forefront for managers throughout the company. Each business and region has its own Diversity & Inclusion Council that develops strategies to help keep each region as diverse as possible. Led by the Chief Diversity & Inclusion executive, the Global Diversity & Inclusion Organization partners with businesses across regions to develop strategy, recruit diverse talent, and manage our diversity sponsorships and strategic alliances.

Employee Networks

At Bank of America, diversity is part of our DNA. Our Employee Networks are perfect examples of how the bank grows stronger through its commitment to diversity and inclusion. In 2013, through Employee Networks around the world, more than 60,000 employees connected and participated in networking opportunities, mentoring programs, information forums and various volunteer events. Many members also served in leadership roles and led initiatives for recruiting, client development and community partnerships.
