NAB Leadership Foundation to Honor JPMorgan Chase
|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, May 17, 2023|
The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) has announced JPMorgan Chase as the recipient of the 2023 Corporate Leadership Award. The award will be given during the 2023 Celebration of Service to America Awards, presented by Bonneville International and Hearst Television and held in Washington, DC on June 6 at The Anthem.
Each year, the Corporate Leadership Award is given to a leading business outside of the broadcast industry that exemplifies an extraordinary focus on community service and corporate social responsibility. JPMorgan Chase was nominated by Circle City Broadcasting, a Black-owned TV station in Indianapolis, which has worked with the bank on multiple initiatives, recognizing the bank's efforts to help ensure businesses, communities and employees build sustainable wealth, especially in Black, Hispanic and Latino communities.
Serving over 100 global markets, JPMorgan Chase is committed to strengthening the global financial system, creating economic opportunity that's accessible and breaking down barriers to drive inclusive growth.
"We are moved by the transformative work that JPMorgan Chase is doing in local communities to expand accessible homeownership, create a more diverse and inclusive workforce and grow small businesses," said NAB Leadership Foundation President and NAB Chief Diversity Officer Michelle Duke. "The foundation is honored to present JPMorgan Chase with the 2023 Corporate Leadership Award for their outstanding commitment to community service and philanthropy."
Building on existing investments, JPMorgan Chase made a $30 billion Racial Equity Commitment in 2020 to help close the racial wealth gap. The five-year commitment includes lending and direct funding to help increase sustainable homeownership, expand affordable housing, grow small businesses, support diverse suppliers, improve financial health and build a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
"For more than 200 years, JPMorgan Chase has served as an engine of the economy and champion of opportunity around the world in good and challenging times," said JPMorgan Chase Global Head of Philanthropy for the North America Region Alicia Wilson. "We're proud to receive the 2023 Corporate Leadership Award from the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation, which shares our dedication to advancing equity and commitment to supporting local communities."
In addition to the Corporate Leadership Award, local television and radio stations and broadcast groups will be recognized for their exemplary public service and philanthropic efforts during the 2023 Celebration of Service to America awards.
