Katie Simpson | President, Bank of America Minneapolis/St. Paul
Hear from Katie Simpson, President of Bank of America Minneapolis/St. Paul, about our role in keeping the Twin Cities moving forward.
One of the key tenants to our strategy of responsible growth is how we give back to our communities.
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 the Twin Cities recently presented Second Harvest Heartland with a check for $40,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
The job skills gap has disproportionately affected Black and Latino individuals – and this disparity has been compounded by the coronavirus. To help address this gap, Bank of America works with local nonprofits, employers and broader networks across the country to support skills-training programs that meet the specific workforce demands of local communities. The result is a diverse talent pipeline for employers – and a clear path to employment for individuals.
