Here in Worcester, there is an urgent need for skill building — including re-skilling and up-skilling — to create a clear pathway to jobs that can deliver upward mobility and economic stability. To drive progress, Bank•of•America is investing $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, building on work we've had underway for many years. We're helping to connect people to the skills, resources and experience needed to succeed by building partnerships with nonprofits and local government, and through our own recruiting and hiring. This includes partnerships with Community Colleges that serve predominately Black and Hispanic/Latino students, and public Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic Serving Institutions. In Worcester, we remain committed to supporting organizations that help people in our community get the skills they need. Edwin T. Shea, Jr. Worcester Market President BankofAmerica, N.A.
