AFP is thrilled to announce that J.P. Morgan is joining our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Awareness Initiative for Treasury and Finance, which introduces corporate treasury and finance careers to underrepresented communities.
J.P. Morgan will work with AFP in helping aspiring young professionals from diverse backgrounds lead rewarding careers in treasury and finance, through professional development, skills building, ongoing training and continuous learning.
“The corporate treasury and finance profession will only grow stronger when there is a diverse set of skills, backgrounds and viewpoints at the table,” said Jim Kaitz, president & CEO of AFP. “At AFP, we are committed to working with our partners to provide individuals from diverse backgrounds with the tools and opportunities they need to become the leaders that will drive the profession forward.”
“Diversity and inclusion is critical to the success and growth of our industry, both for us as a firm, and for our clients,” said Lori Schwartz, managing director and global head of liquidity and account solutions, J.P. Morgan. “Treasury and finance is a very exciting space, and we will need talent from all backgrounds to create the best financial and technology solutions together for the future.”
As part of the initiative, AFP offers scholarships for our Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) and Certified Corporate FP&A Professional (FPAC) certifications.
