In June 2016, BNY Mellon hosted a signature event with Prime Minister Theresa May (then UK Home Secretary and Member of Parliament) at our London office. She talked about the next frontier for diversity and inclusion and critical intersections with business, politics and social progress. More than 100 clients and guests attended, including senior financial services executives and multinational business leaders from various industries. They had unprecedented and candid conversations about a more progressive, business-led approach to diversity and inclusion that engages different perspectives, experiences and backgrounds to transform the world’s challenges into opportunities. Prime Minister May’s comments resonate well at BNY Mellon where, with Diversity & Inclusion 2.0, we are creating a common language to move the conversation forward and inspire greater business ownership and accountability.
“BNY Mellon has a tradition of visionary leadership and a rich history of thriving through challenge and complexity. As we look to the future, our innovative spirit, diverse workforce and inclusive mindset continue to drive our focus on serving clients with distinction, making meaningful impact in our communities and blazing new paths to prosperity so even more people will have a bright and secure future.”Hani Kablawi, Executive Vice President and CEO, EMEA Investment Services
