Joe Gianni | President, Bank of America Hartford
Hear from Joe Gianni, President of Bank of America Hartford, about our role in keeping Hartford moving forward.
We all have a role to play in addressing inequity and creating opportunity for everyone. At Bank of America, we’re committed to doing our part for the communities where our customers and employees live and work.
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.
Through this effort, our team in Connecticut recently presented Connecticut Foodshare with a check for $185,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
Dedicated to preparing students for successful careers in manufacturing to meet the state’s demand for skilled workers, Goodwin University has partnered with the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technologies and Connecticut State Colleges and Universities to launch the Connecticut Manufacturing Workforce Development Initiative. Supported by funding from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the initiative will provide 1,600 existing workers with education, training and apprenticeships over the next four years, helping them advance from entry level jobs, forge a better career path, and earn higher incomes.
With millions of Americans struggling with high housing costs, or, worse, finding themselves at risk of losing their homes altogether, local nonprofits are working hard to provide housing in their communities. Hartford Interval House, Connecticut’s largest agency dedicated to ending domestic violence, has seen a record high demand for the free services it offers, from counseling to emergency shelter. But no one has been turned away.
