Alexis comments: “BNY Mellon cultivated and championed deeply rooted Business Resource Groups such as PRISM, WIN, IMPACT, GENEDGE, and VETNET even before I began my career here. These BRGs allow individuals to have a voice and take action for a cause we are passionate about. They allow individuals with a common passion and purpose to connect across the globe and find allies, and broaden our network. Getting involved in BRGs is also a fantastic way to strengthen our tools and background for career growth. BNY Mellon does not just ‘say’ the right things – we put words into specific goals and actions to continue to increase our diversity and foster an inclusive environment. “
“I am proud to be a Project 1000 Role Model because there is nothing more important than allyship and advocacy. Every individual should feel supported to bring their full self to work and know they are celebrated, respected, and have a journey ahead through which they can make significant impact.”
