Bill Tommins | President, Bank of America Southern Connecticut

Hear from Bill Tommins, President of Bank of America Southern Connecticut, about our role in keeping Southern Connecticut moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Southern Connecticut has a strong team committed to helping all our communities thrive. We’re making a difference through a number of programs, including those that connect workers to new skills and fight homelessness and food insecurity. We’re supporting hospitality workers displaced by the health crisis retrain for careers in healthcare, collaborating with major hospital systems to identify job needs. Funds have gone directly to community colleges to cover tuition for low-income students and to nonprofits that are helping their clients overcome obstacles such as a lack of childcare or transportation. We’re also working toward expanding healthcare access to our most vulnerable minority communities. And, given wealth disparities in our region, we’re proud to support affordable housing initiatives through long-standing partnerships in the area.

A new start for those out of work

Confronting the uneven impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on different industries, a public-private partnership in southern Connecticut is retraining displaced workers in hospitality and other hard-hit local industries for high-demand jobs in healthcare. Workers participate in fast-tracked career training programs at local community colleges while also receiving assistance with housing, childcare, food, and other basic needs to ensure they can complete their training.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.
