Making the economy work for more people is a key focus for JPMorgan Chase. As part of that mission we launched Advancing Black Pathways—an initiative that builds on our existing efforts to help the black community chart stronger paths towards economic success and empowerment.


Advancing Black Pathways

Structural barriers in the U.S. have created profound racial inequalities, made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic. The racial wealth gap puts a strain on families’ economic mobility and restricts the U.S. economy.

Building on our existing investments, we will harness our expertise in business, policy and philanthropy and commit $30 billion over the next five years to drive an inclusive recovery, support employees and break down barriers of systemic racism.

Our work is focused across:

"For far too long, Black communities have faced profound challenges and inequality due to systemic racial barriers. At JPMorgan Chase, we recognize our responsibility as the world’s largest bank to address these disparities and are harnessing our expertise in business, policy, data and philanthropy to empower Black communities around the world.

Through Advancing Black Pathways, we’re supporting Black individuals, households and entrepreneurs so they too can share fully in economic growth."

Byna Elliott, JP Morgan Chase Managing Director,
and Head of Advancing Black Pathways




Expanding Economic Opportunity For the Black Community


We are uniquely positioned to marshal our resources to help address some of the persistent challenges facing the black community. Everyone deserves the opportunity to participate in economic growth. That's why we are providing more support for the black community in their pursuit of educational, career, business and personal financial success.




Advancing Black Pathways combines JPMorgan Chase’s business and philanthropic resources to focus on three pathways to accelerate economic empowerment and opportunity for the black community.
