What Works: Supporting Success in America's Cities
In conjunction with What Works, a yearlong series from POLITICO Magazine on the innovative ideas coming out of America's cities, JPMorgan Chase & Co. is telling its own stories about people and partnerships creating meaningful change in their communities.
"This is probably the most innovative country in the world," says Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase. "And that innovation is everywhere: People willing to make that investment and take that risk to try to grow something extraordinary."
But one of the challenges to that innovative spirit is the skills gap, the jobs that are unfilled in America because people don't have the necessary training to perform them. Watch this video to learn more about what's working in America today, including JPMorgan Chase's $250 million commitment to closing that skills gap in partnership with nonprofit organizations, along with programs to support affordable housing and make our cities more competitive.
