IMPACT plays an important role in BNY Mellon's commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace by placing specific emphasis on the recruitment, retention, professional development and advancement of multicultural employees.
We believe that by building a diverse workforce and vibrant culture of inclusion, we create a stronger, smarter company, better able to meet the needs of our global clients.
IMPACT promotes career development and advancement.
IMPACT supports BNY Mellon’s commitment to recognize and reward high performance and excellence from our talent through our culture of meritocracy. Everyone has equal opportunity to deliver their very best, and to receive the reward and recognition they deserve for it.
Why Talking About Race Matters was a co-sponsored event by our three Employee/Business Resource Groups, IMPACT (Multicultural Network), EMEA Legal Diversity and Inclusion Counsel, and WIN (Women’s Initiative Network) exploring how we can tackle issues surrounding race in the workplace and discuss the experiences of Women of Colour as they navigate their careers, with a keynote speech delivered by Afua Hirsch, writer and broadcaster and change-maker for equality in the UK. There was a focus on constructive ways to promote adoption of these valuable conversations within BNY Mellon (pictured from left to right: Yvette Forrester, Johanna Copol, Karim Perrineau, Afua Hirsch, Noon Ali)
