PRISM Network

Mission Statement

BNY Mellon’s PRISM Network promotes an open and supportive environment for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning and their ally (LGBTQA) employees. By fostering outreach to LGBTQA employees, Prism contributes to the company's role as a leading corporate citizen.

Many of us have to navigate between a world and culture we are comfortable with and an environment that may not always be so welcoming. Anyone who identifies with a minority group learns various ways of adapting to the realities of the environment around them. However, adapting is a coping mechanism and takes away from being authentic. At BNY Mellon we don’t want our staff to just cope. We want them to thrive and grow in a diverse, inclusive environment. It is only through embracing our differences that we recognize our strengths.

Invested in LGBTQA Communities

PRISM supports LGBTQA employees and allies.

Through mentoring opportunities and internal and external networking functions, PRISM members and BNY Mellon staff can identify and promote career development opportunities.

PRISM bridges the gaps of understanding.

PRISM helps to nurture an open and supportive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and ally employees (LGBTQA). Our management team is committed to diversity and inclusion, and our Prism community has shown its commitment to the company in many ways – donating time to volunteer and to cultivate programs that are important and help move BNY Mellon forward.

PRISM strengthens our businesses.

It is only through embracing our differences that we recognize our strengths. PRISM offers opportunities to support the company's mission in attracting and retaining top talent.
