As part of LGBT’s History Month in the UK, J.P. Morgan is a proud sponsor of The Official Guide to LGBT History Month UK 2015. The publication focuses on the importance of diversity and inclusion.
J.P. Morgan supports and encourages diversity in the workplace through Business Resource Groups. 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 assists the firm in building business within the LGBT marketplace.
Following is an excerpt from J.P. Morgan’s article in this month’s issues of The Official Guide to LGBT History Month UK 2015: 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 and other historically underrepresented groups.
