Giving back to our local community
Being a good corporate citizen and operating with integrity is central to how we do business. We believe that we have a responsibility to harness our business, talent and global presence to strengthen economies and communities. J.P. Morgan’s corporate responsibility initiatives in Australia and New Zealand focus on workforce readiness programs for underserved youth and aim to support the communities in which we live and work.
We know that our strongest asset is the talent of our employees. The GoodWorks Program is an employee-led volunteer program that allows employees to identify opportunities where they can make a difference and create meaningful impact through local community service activities.
J.P. Morgan has been a long-term supporter of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and provided free access to the public to the Brett Whiteley Studio, the workplace and home of Australian artist, Brett Whiteley (1939-1992) in Sydney’s Surry Hills for 20 years. In 2023, we became a major partner of The Tank Gallery Exhibition Series, held in The Tank Gallery, which was once used to fuel the naval fleets in WWII, that has been transformed into a spectacular art space and is one of the highlights of the Sydney Modern Project.
The firm continues to acquire artworks to ensure that our local collection remains dynamic, and reflects our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. The acquisitions represent younger, women, First Nations and LGBTQ artists, presenting a more contemporary view of art in Australia.
