We are pleased to welcome JPMorgan Chase & Co as a member of the WVCBA community! Their $30-billion Racial Equity Commitment went live in November 2020 to help close the racial wealth gap and drive economic inclusion by providing more opportunities for homeownership, access to affordable housing, entrepreneurship and bolstering financial health. Learn more from Community Manager Erica Ayala who covers Ventura County –and Oxnard specifically – as it holds the largest minority households and biggest wealth gap.
What products or services do you provide?
Financial health workshops, facilitates non-profit partnerships and offers community programming.
Tell us more about the company's Racial Equity Commitment.
Our $30 billion, five-year commitment focuses on addressing some of the largest drivers of the racial wealth divide including homeownership, affordable housing, small businesses growth, financial health, access to banking, supplier diversity and workforce diversity.
What’s one thing the business is known for over its competitors?
Our commitment to Financial Literacy isn’t like other institutions as it is backed by commitment in other sectors that impact a whole community such as home ownership and small business growth.
Are there any new events you can tell us about?
Yes, I host virtual and in person events around Financial Health every Wednesday evening. We want to bring finance into the homes of families and change a cultural barrier that brings finance a family goal.
How can the community help the business?
Network and showcase the work we are doing but specifically how I am amplifying the voices of the underserved and underbanked as we spread the word in our Racial Equity Commitment.
