Let’s build something together

As Greater Washington, D.C.’s local market president, I am privileged to lead 2500 teammates in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Our team delivers for clients, employees, and communities from Fredericksburg, VA to Frederick, MD. Through the Board of Trade; the Washington, D.C. Economic Club; and partnerships with many non-profit leaders, the 2500-strong Bank of America team in the DMV is committed to helping drive economic opportunity across the Greater Washington, D.C. market. Partnering with Howard University Hospital to fund free Covid testing and working with Capital Area Asset Builders to support workforce development and education allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better DMV.

The innovative way NOVA is building careers

Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is the largest public educational institution in Virginia, one of the largest community colleges in the U.S., and with students from more than 180 countries, also one of the most diverse. Bank of America is providing $1 million to NOVA to better prepare students of color to enter the workforce and accelerate sustainable careers. This funding builds on an innovative partnership with the Virginia Ready Initiative, which seeks to re-skill and upskill Virginians for employment through training assistance and credential achievement awards, primarily in the medical, information technology and coding fields. VA Ready is also using funds to provide $1,000 each to participating state residents who lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
