Today, Out & Equal is excited to announce the commitment of $1 million dollars from JPMorgan Chase, a Sustaining Titanium Partner.

The funding, to be provided over four years, will support our organization’s largest and most comprehensive program to further trans equality at work and develop the next generation of trans leaders. Out & Equal will now be able to invest more in the professional development in trans and gender-expansive employees across all career stages and to step up our investments in transforming the workplaces in which they show up. As part of this effort, we are also developing diagnostics, toolkits, resources, and trainings for employers.

“The need to step up for the trans and gender-expansive community is clear and JPMorgan Chase deserves credit for making this commitment,” said Erin Uritus, CEO of Out & Equal Workplace Advocates. “We’re excited to be able to expand our efforts to help members of this community thrive at work!”

JPMorgan Chase has long been a leader in diversity and inclusion and in efforts to advance equality for the LGBTQ community. In fact, JPMorgan Chase announced this funding as part of a larger $5 million commitment to several LGBTQ non-profit organizations including GLSEN, SAGE, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and The Center. Thank you to JPMorgan Chase for your outstanding commitment to LGBTQ workplace inclusion and for your continued partnership with Out & Equal!
