In Greater Philadelphia we must come together as a business community to ensure an equitable recovery from the adverse impact of the coronavirus. Now is a critical time to be training, reskilling and upskilling adults and young people in preparation for high-quality, sustainable jobs of the future.

Let’s build something together

As President of Bank of America Philadelphia, I get to work with extraordinary leaders as we set our strategy to address social inequality and economic opportunities in communities throughout the five counties and South Jersey. I oversee the bank’s impactful work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Bucks County to Delaware County to the Jersey Shore. I’m also charged with helping to strengthen economic opportunity and build strong communities through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to the Greater Philadelphia region at this time. These initiatives, like supporting workforce development and education efforts such as OnE Philadelphia, and supporting small businesses with organizations like The Enterprise Center, allow us to all come together as neighbors toward a better Greater Philadelphia.

How to help young people find tech jobs — and keep them

The instability that often accompanies poverty can make it hard to hold a job, earn a promotion and pursue educational opportunities. That insight has led Hopeworks N Camden, a southern N.J. nonprofit, to develop a life-skills curriculum that prepares 18 to 24 year olds for technology careers — as well as all facets of success. Its holistic approach combines coaching, counseling, and the option to stay in a residential center. Nine out of ten alumni from the past year are still working. Bank of America funding supports Hopeworks’ award-winning Recode Your Future tech skills program.
