At Bank of America, we are guided by a common purpose to help make financial lives better by connecting clients and communities to the resource they need to be successful. We deliver this through a focus on responsible growth and environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership.
We are driving growth – helping to create jobs, develop communities, foster economic mobility and address society’s biggest challenges – while managing risk and providing a return to our clients and our shareholders. Because we recognize that we can only be successful when the individuals, companies, communities and employees we serve are able to reach their vision of success.
We believe in the importance of treating each client and teammate as an individual and treating every moment as one that matters. We strive to go the distance to deliver, with discipline and passion. We believe everything we do for clients, employees and the communities we serve is built on a solid foundation that delivers for shareholders.
We believe that integrity and the disciplined management of risk form the foundation of our business. We are aware that our decisions and actions affect people’s lives every day. We strive for decisions that are clear, fair, and grounded in the principles of shared success, responsible citizenship, and community building.
Realize the power of our people
We want our employees to reach their full potential. We believe that diverse backgrounds and experiences make us stronger. We respect every individual and value our differences - in thought, style, culture, ethnicity, and experience.
Trust the team
We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when people work together across the entire company. We believe great teams are built on mutual trust, shared ownership, and accountability. We act as one company and believe when we work together, we best meet the full needs of our clients.
At Bank of America, we realize the power of our people and value our differences — in thought, style, sexual orientation, gender identity, culture, ethnicity and experience — recognizing that our diversity makes us a stronger company. Diversity and inclusion are central to our company's values, and we are proud to be widely recognized for our progressive workplace practices and initiatives that promote inclusion.
Bank of America’s Employee Networks provide employees with opportunities to connect with each other to develop leadership skills, build strong ties with their communities, broaden their view of diversity and address issues that matter to them. We have 11 Employee Networks with more than 240 chapters made up of more than 93,000 memberships worldwide.
We also invest in women’s leadership and economic empowerment, helping women make, meaningful contributions—within the company and around the globe. Our Global Women’s Conference brings together female leaders to learn about leadership and advocacy, and our Women’s Executive Development Program offers a 10-month program to develop and retain talent – studies show attendees are seven times more likely to be promoted. Our Global Ambassadors Program in partnership with Vital Voices connects women entrepreneurs from more than 50 countries to mentoring. We also partner with Paradigm for Parity, a coalition dedicated to addressing the gender gap in corporate leadership.
At Bank of America, our culture comes from how we run the company every day. At the heart of our responsible growth strategy is our commitment to "act responsibly," which includes our commitments to ethical behavior, acting with integrity and complying with laws, rules, regulations, and policies that reinforce such behavior.
We're committed to building a workplace where every employee is not only welcomed, but given the support and resources to build and advance their careers.
