On: Aug 2020

Leaders from the leading American companies, including banks as well as tech giants have created a group whose aim is to increase the hiring of individuals from minority communities in New York. The Jobs CEO council of the New York has counted chief executives from almost 27 American companies among its members, which aimed to hire around 100,000 people from Latino as well as Asian, and low- income black communities by 2030.

The CEO of JPMorgan, Jamie Dimon, the chief executive of IBM, Arvind Krishna and the CEO of Accenture, Julie Sweet will co-chair the companies group. According to the statement, other firms in the group contain Amazon, Google, Goldman Sachs and Microsoft. American companies have been under growing pressure to perform more to offer minority groups along with full access to opportunities in the sign of anti-racism protest raised by the death of an African-American man.

The protests also viewed as minorities were unequally showcases in COVID-19 deaths and less-income communities in the US were hampered economically. Today’s economic problem is producing economic and racial divides and representing systemic barriers to opportunity. Damon stated that high-skilled people across New York were not offered opportunities at the top employers of the city.
