Diversity & inclusion

Councils & employee networks

Our employee networks are made up of more than 240 chapters worldwide, and contains more than 80,000 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 our Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, the Global Diversity & Inclusion Organization partners with businesses across regions to develop strategy, recruit diverse talent, and manage our diversity sponsorships and strategic alliances.

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. We have 11 Employee Networks with more than 240 chapters made up of more than 80,000 of our employees worldwide. These networks provide participants with frequent opportunities to connect with those of a similar dimension of diversity – along with their allies – to develop leadership skills, build strong ties with the communities we serve and bring lasting value to our business strategies.
