A Vital Voices and Bank of America partnership
We believe strong leaders can be drivers of economic opportunities and that women are a force to drive economic, political and social change. This is the reason why we partnered with Vital Voices and developed our Global Ambassadors Program. Vital Voices is the preeminent, non-governmental organization that empowers emerging women leaders. Global Ambassadors invests in the potential of emerging women leaders around the world, by matching them with mentors who are established leaders. Mentorship is critical to accelerating women's leadership paths and to closing the gap that currently exists in many countries. These mentorships help build critical communication, advocacy and business skills; provide essential connections; strengthen existing networks; and help women leaders create measurable impact in their communities. It's all part of our efforts to help create a sustainable future for our customers and communities worldwide.
Our Global Ambassadors Program has a truly worldwide reach, with past trips in Poland, Northern Ireland, Mexico, Qatar, Brazil, Singapore, India, South Africa and Haiti. In March 2015, our return trip to South Africa takes on the issue of HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
