Black History Month: A time to reflect
February is Black History Month, a time to reflect on the history, achievements and contributions of Black/African Americans and their role in U.S. history and at Bank of America. As a global company, our workforce reflects the communities where we live and work, and we know that these diverse backgrounds and experiences make Bank of America a great place to work, and strengthen our client offering.
To commemorate Black History Month, our Black Professional Group (BPG) hosts a number of virtual and in-person events across the country. Highlights from 2019 include:
- Boston: Employees enjoyed open access to The Museum of African American History. The event featured remarks from the Market President’s office and BPG Boston, followed by a networking reception.
- Charlotte: BPG Charlotte, in partnership with LEAD for Women, kicked off Black History Month with a panel discussion about creating a more inclusive workforce. BPG Charlotte also hosted a private exhibit viewing and networking reception at the Harvey B. Gantt Center in partnership with the Global Technology & Operations Black Leadership Advisory Council.
- Los Angeles: BPG SoCal hosted a panel event titled Economic Prosperity – Past, Present & Future at the San Antonia Winery.
