Bank of America employees and friends came together in cities around the country to support one another during Pride celebrations and events. Locally, Employee Network chapters participated in Pride parades, festivals and other programs in support of the communities where many of us live and work.
Across markets, we encouraged entire communities to march together in support of Pride. We know that our differences can strengthen our connections and help to build stronger, more thriving communities. We seek to set an example of the importance of valuing, supporting, embracing and celebrating diversity -- whether we’re in Boston, Massachusetts, Los Angeles, California, Charlotte, North Carolina or somewhere in between.
This year, Bank of America’s participation in Pride activities was enhanced by the announcement of our partnership with Love Has No Labels, an Ad Council campaign designed to help Americans embrace diversity and encourage people to recognize their unconscious biases. It aims to inspire people to treat others with fairness and respect. This campaign is one of the key pillars of our diversity and inclusion programs and will be incorporated into a wide range of Employee Network activities across the country.
At Bank of America, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive company, where all of our employees are encouraged to bring their full selves to work. Diversity – in thought, style, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture and experience – is essential to our business, employees, customers and communities. Joining the Love Has No Labels campaign is just one example of how we are actively helping to build inclusive communities where all viewpoints are valued.
