The Philadelphia Academy High School Program
(Business Experience Educational Program, "BEEP")
Junior and Senior minority students from participating high schools are accepted for co-op work assignments at the Bank. These students are placed in various departments to gain meaningful work experience and job skills that would help them obtain employment. Participating students are considered for employment at the Bank upon successful completion of their work assignment. We currently have a Vice President on our staff who started at the Bank as a student from this program.
Black Executive Exchange Program (National Urban League)
The Bank sends minority staff members upon requests from Black educational institutions to: 1) serve as guest lecturers, 2) to supplement classroom instructions, 3) to provide role identification.
Minority Resource Council
This in-house Council consists of minority managerial/professional employees who assist and support the Bank's recruitment programs. These employees provide input to help identify minority recruitment sources and contacts for the Bank. They also may accompany Bank recruiters to selected colleges.
Recruitment for Minorities and Females
The Bank continues to seek qualified minorities and women for openings in all levels and operations in the Bank. Special emphasis is placed on candidates for managerial/professional positions. To achieve this objective, recruitment will be ongoing at colleges, employment agencies, professional trade associations, and other community service
American Economics Association (AEA)
The Bank provides financial support to this program which seeks to increase the representation of minorities at the Ph.D. level in the economics profession.
Maintaining and improving the Bank's minority and female population over the next few years will be particularly challenging due to environmental factors such as consolidation of several Federal Reserve System activities and the forecasted reduction in volumes in several other areas. In this environment we expect to experience declining staffing levels.
During 1992 and 1993, we will expand our efforts to provide continued progress for minorities and women by effectively utilizing the programs mentioned earlier, encouraging more employee referrals, seeking new sources of hiring, and providing further training and development opportunities. We believe these efforts will help us to reach our affirmative action goals and continue to move minorities and women into the upper ranks of our organization.
