Employee Resource Groups
We are committed to all the dimensions of diversity within our global organization
Employee resource groups are an important component of our company's diversity program. These are groups of employees that are formed around a shared characteristic, such as race, ethnicity, gender, disability or sexual orientation. Membership is voluntary and open to all employees. By presenting opportunities for people to network with others with whom they have shared experiences, the company seeks to help all of its employees around the globe feel welcomed and included.
BNY Mellon is proud to sponsor four cross-company employee resource groups that recognize the value of our diverse and global workforce.
