Black Tie International:
IT'S UP TO YOU
National Conference on
Volunteering & Service

 

 

 

Service is a Solution
and Accountability is Our Foundation

 

 
Jamie Dimon Addresses Service Leaders at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service and Doubles Commitment to

Jamie Dimon Addresses Service Leaders at the
 National Conference on Volunteering and Service and Doubles Commitment to Employee Volunteer Hours in 2010


“The foundation of corporate responsibility is a deep sense of accountability to our communities,” said Jamie Dimon. This week Jamie Dimon, spoke to more than 5,000 volunteer and service leaders at the 2010 National Conference on Volunteering and Service at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

“I am proud to say we really do push ourselves to do more service and philanthropy, even during these tough economic times.” “We are accountable to the communities we serve,” added Dimon.

Dimon discussed the importance of corporate service as a solution to pressing community needs and announced that the company’s goal of 100,000 hours of community service by employees had been exceeded and raised that goal to 200,000 hours by the end of 2010.

“We have always remained focused on the fundamentals of banking, serving our clients and communities,” said Dimon. “This kind of action, leadership, generosity and accountability for helping our fellow man through devastating crisis, makes me extremely proud.”

This year’s annual conference themed, “It’s Up to You,” recognizes that everyone has the power to make a difference.

Sixteen company service leaders took part in the event, representing some of the firm’s more than 35 Volunteer Leadership Groups across the U.S. These leaders took part in many of the more than 170 workshops and forums focusing on a variety of service-related topics created to engage participants in driving change in their communities through innovative methods.

The conference sessions, included a CEO roundtable and address from Kimberly Davis, President, JPMorgan Chase Foundation who spoke about the importance of corporations uniting and taking action together. 

Frank Bisignano, Chief Administrative Officer, participated as a panelist during the roundtable and had this to say about the company’s commitment to embrace social responsibility, “I try to lead by example.” He also said his goal is to provide employees with the opportunity to give their time, experience and create opportunities that make sense in their communities.

“Today’s discussions of service are important and timely,” said Davis. She also noted, the needs of our communities are greater than ever before and the combination of a still recovering economy and tight government budgets are creating enormous demand for service. 

Organized by the Points of Light Institute and the Corporation for National and Community Service, the conference is the largest annual gathering of leaders in the volunteer and community service field, representing corporations, foundations, government and the nonprofit sectors. JPMorgan Chase and Co. was one of the major corporate sponsors of the event whose goal is to raise awareness for and share best practices approaches to community service.

Other conference highlights included a company-sponsored volunteer activity and a business track that discussed how corporations invest in local communities.

More than 30 employee volunteers participated in a service project as a part of conference activities in New York. The project focused on environmental sustainability, with a park clean-up at Inwood Hill Park in Manhattan.
