Recognizing that women face unique barriers to professional success, JPMorgan Chase launched Women on the Move in 2013. The program began as a series of town halls for the firm’s female employees in New York and offered an opportunity to collectively explore the challenges women face in the workplace and share ideas on how to best support career development.
Led by Asset Management CEO Mary Erdoes and Chief Financial Officer Marianne Lake, senior women took the program on the road, hosting events in locations where the company employs hundreds, and often thousands, of women. Since it began, the program has been hosted in 23 cities and senior women from across the company have met with more than 6,000 employees.
Women on the Move has proven an invaluable channel to hear directly from and exchange ideas with women at all levels in the company, as well as industry leaders and members of the communities in which we live and work. As Women on the Move evolves, we are proud to share the work of our employees and nonprofit partners in helping women achieve their goals and transform their lives.
”We have an amazing group of women in this company and we need to be sure they have everything they need to achieve their fullest potential.“
”There is a plethora of research that proves that having more women in the workforce at senior levels… does improve the bottom line of companies.“
