J.P. Morgan actively supports female employees’ career development. The Women On the Move Japan (“WOTM IN Japan”), comprising employees in the Japan office, plays a key role in helping to improve the work environment for female employees, to increase the number of female executives across our franchise and helping our female employees develop their careers over the long term. The group provides employees with numerous networking opportunities, mentoring, training for career progression and skill development programs. WOTM IN Japan also works in partnership with external groups and organizations to provide networking opportunities.
In addition, J.P. Morgan organizes a recruiting seminar called “Winning Women,” specifically designed for female students across the globe. In Japan, we host the event every fall and provide female students with opportunities to talk to female employees at the J.P. Morgan Tokyo office.
Employees with disabilities
At J.P. Morgan, employees with disabilities work in a wide range of positions. We provide tailored support for these employees as needed, including flexible work arrangements, skills development and career management, so that they are able to maximize their potential.
Our Access Ability group acts as a resource on disability issues, a voice for employees with disabilities, and a partner in the success of all JPMorgan Chase colleagues.
J.P. Morgan supports LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) staff with inclusive policies. For instance, the company’s provisions for child care, family care and adoption leave, child birth leave and ex-gratia payment apply with domestic partners and domestic partner’s children.
Our PRIDE group engages and supports our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender employees, and Allies and management, in promoting an inclusive environment.
J.P. Morgan was again ranked ‘Gold’ in the work with Pride index in 2019 for its inclusive policies and support for LGBT employees, and was among the first companies to be ranked when the index launched in 2016.
