Michael Burnham

Vice President at State Street

About

Bio: Mike is a Vice President at State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) as their Head of Product Data Management. He has worked in banking and funds management for twenty years with the majority of this time in Product Management roles. With his background in Product Management, Mike now heads up a team which automates and disseminates all Product Data for SSGA’s range of Funds and ETFs in EMEA.

In addition to the above, Mike spent 7 years at State Street as Co-Chair of their UK Pride Network, expanding the focus of the network to ensure all areas of the LGBT+ community feel represented within the workplace. A big part of this work for Mike since taking over the Co-Chair position has been to concentrate on the “inclusive” aspect of D&I and how the network could work with HR to ensure all policies are explicitly inclusive of LGBT+ staff. This has resulted in changes to our existing bereavement, adoption and parental leave policies but also the introduction of new policies such as our Transitioning in the Workplace policy.

Mike has also been a huge champion of State Street’s Corporate Citizenship team and with their support has done considerable amount of work with Opening Doors London and Positive East. For the latter, this has resulted in Mike being appointed as a Trustee and he has served on their board since 2018.
