Promoting a diverse workplace starts at the top
With a global workforce in more than 40 countries, diversity and inclusion — in thought, style, experience, culture, ethnicity and sexual orientation — are good for business, help attract and retain talent and enable us to better serve employees, customers, clients and shareholders.
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. Our Global Diversity & Inclusion organization is led by Geri Thomas, our Chief Diversity Officer. Geri and her team partner with businesses across regions to develop strategy, recruit diverse talent, and manage our diversity sponsorships and strategic alliances.
Recruiting the right talent:
Every day, we’re focused on creating not only a great place to work, but also an environment where our employees, our customers and our communities around the world can reach their goals and connect with each other.
We seek to attract, recruit and retain top diverse talent from across the globe. Our Diversity Executive Recruiting Team identifies prospective executives and connects talent to leaders within our organization. We also increased our diversity hiring with a focus on early candidate identification and development through partnerships with approximately 200 schools and external diversity organizations.
Fostering a diverse employee network:
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. With more than 200 chapters across the globe, our networks enhance the development and engagement of more than 60,000 employee members through numerous events each year, focused on networking, mentoring and encouraging each other's development, leadership and success.
Maintaining supplier diversity:
Our Supplier Diversity and Development program works to make sure that the goods and services we purchase in our communities come from a wide range of sources and our suppliers have a chance to become long-term partners. Our suppliers include minorities and people with disabilities, as well as businesses owned by veterans, women, and individuals in the LGBT community. In 2013, we spent $2.32 billion with diverse businesses.
At Bank of America, we’re proud of who we are, and we celebrate our differences every day.
