About J.P. Morgan
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. is a leader in financial services, offering solutions to clients in more than 100 countries with one of the most comprehensive global product platforms available. We have been helping our clients do business and manage their wealth for more than 200 years. Our business has been built upon our core principle of putting our clients first.
J.P. Morgan is part of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), a global financial services firm.
Diversity is a cornerstone of our global culture, helping us to meet the changing needs of our clients, customers, employees and the communities we serve. Our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion are comprehensive. We hire, develop and retain a diverse workforce and supplier base, cultivating relationships with firms owned and operated by minorities, women and other historically underrepresented groups.
Business Resource Groups are one of the key mechanisms through which we support and encourage diversity in the workplace. Each are sponsored by a member of the firm’s Operating Committee, providing support and career development for different employee groups. Currently more than 52,000 employees are members of these employee-led affinity groups.
J.P. Morgan and PRIDE
We have a longstanding commitment to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community — inclusive of clients and customers, employees and the
communities in which we operate. We have an impressive story to tell — for example, in 1998, we were one of the first firms on Wall Street to offer domestic partner benefits; additionally our commitment has resulted in more than £1.5 million in charitable support to over 100 different LGBT community partners around the world including Stonewall.
PRIDE is an employee-led diversity group, set up in 1996, that exists to engage and support all employees in promoting an inclusive environment within J.P.Morgan which consistently allows LGBT colleagues the opportunity to build successful careers and reach their full potential. It also serves as a resource to the local and global LGBT communities and to assist the firm in building business within the LGBT marketplace.
