We at JPMorgan Chase strive to be leaders, to set an example and elevate the standard of what makes a top workforce. Our collective diversity is a strength that leads to the best solutions for our clients, customers and communities. We know that success is achieved through a balanced team of women and men making joint decisions. It is, therefore, an honor to work for a company that strives to create an environment of equality, allowing all employees to realize their full potential and develop a solid foundation for professional and economic growth. I am so proud to highlight some of the many JPMorgan Chase initiatives that promote women in business:
• Women’s Interactive Network (WIN) aims to provide access to the tools that enable the successful retention, development and advancement of women at all levels within the firm. WIN hosts events that regularly allow female executives to network with a multitude of junior employees, resulting in the development of mentorships in an open environment.
• Women on the Move addresses the unique challenges and common barriers to professional success that women face. This program is designed to improve upon these issues by providing a forum for female employees to share feedback and exchange ideas with one another, including senior management.
• Our Re-Entry Program breaks down real and perceived barriers by recruiting women looking to return to the workforce after an extended leave for any number of reasons; including raising children, health concerns or caring for relatives.
• Supporting Women in the Middle East is a partnership between J.P. Morgan and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women that helps female entrepreneurs in the United Arab Emirates build profitable and sustainable businesses.
• Men Advocating for Real Change focuses on implementing tangible change in the workplace and community through the active demonstration and promotion of equality of all kinds: gender, race, religion and more.
• Technology Emerging Leaders is a six-month program designed to train promising female technologists to become technology leaders within the firm.
• We support organizations worldwide that work to build a better life for women, including TechnoServe (Ghana), Pro Mujer (Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru) and Women’s Initiative for Self-Employment (San Francisco).
