Since then the programme has been expanded with sessions now running in Chester and Dublin too. More than 300 people have taken part in this initiative, with many going on to secure roles at Bank of America Merrill Lynch or at other firms. The company’s progress in this area, as well as its ongoing commitment to develop female talent, won it the 2015 Working Mums Top Employer Award for Career Progression. Building on this achievement, Bank of America Merrill Lynch was named the World’s Best Bank for Diversity, 2016 in the Euromoney Awards for Excellence and in March this year, the company further pledged its commitment to diversity by signing the HMT Women in Finance Charter.
