Where Inclusion Is Embedded In Our Culture


Central to our success in driving Responsibl­e Growth is cultivatin­g an environmen­t where diversity and inclusion are embedded in all that we do.

At Bank of America, we recently celebrated 10 years of leadership by the Black Executive Leadership Council (BELC), marking the progress we’ve made in achieving more representa­tion for Black/African American leaders. Since the inception of the Council, we’ve doubled the number of Black/African American leaders at our company. The advisory council that sits within BELC is tasked with driving strategies to ensure forward progress.

Together, of our organizati­on, we are invested with in programmin­g developing leaders and resources at all levels to ensure Black/African American teammates can build rewarding careers and achieve their personal and profession­al objectives. With 36 chapters and a membership of 17,000, our Black Profession­al Group further enhances work life, engagement and career advancemen­t.

Our programs, like Diverse Leaders Sponsorshi­p, Women’s Executive Developmen­t, Next-Level Leadership and Multicultu­ral Women Ready to Lead, alongside partners such as The Executive Leadership Council, Black Enterprise, Diversity Woman Media, Coqual and MLT, further enable us to identify, promote and support the career aspiration­s of diverse talent.

To support a diverse and accessible pipeline of talent, we recruit from and invest in more than 60 HBCUs and are a founding member of OneTen, an effort to upskill, hire and promote 1 million Black Americans over the next 10 years into family-sustaining jobs. And we continue to expand educationa­l opportunit­ies and share best practices with partners like the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity & Inclusion.

We remain invested in the advancemen­t of Black/African American communitie­s by being a great place to work for our employees, delivering for our clients, and investing and being proactive in the communitie­s where we live and work.
