Global Investments Company Receives Award

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

Easter Seals honored BNY Mellon with the 2014 Leadership Award during its recent Easter Seals Advocacy Summit Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C. The awards recognize exceptional partners, corporations, organizations, foundations and visionaries making a difference in Easter Seals key focus areas: brain health, veterans and healthy families. BNY Mellon won the award in the veterans category for its commitment to helping our nations veterans transition from military to civilian life.

As military service members return from duty and transition to civilian life, one significant hurdle is finding employment, and part of our mission is to make this easier for the men and women who have bravely served our country, said James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals. BNY Mellon has greatly helped this endeavor through its significant support of our Vets2Jobs program, and their financial support and volunteer leadership have been critical to the programs success.

Vets2Jobs, which is a collaboration between Easter Seals New York and the Easter Seals Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, is a BNY Mellon-funded and supported program to help veterans find viable and meaningful employment.

At BNY Mellon, we believe that continuing to hire, train and mentor military veterans will expand our companys diversity and deliver positive results to our employees, shareholders and clients. Whether its through our employee resource group for the development and advancement of military veterans or through partnerships with organizations like Easter Seals, we are committed to helping veterans find meaningful employment, said Tim Masluk, BNY Mellons Chief Security Officer and Director of Global Security. Masluk is also a member of Easter Seals Dixon Center Command Council.

This award is special because it recognizes our longstanding commitment to providing employment opportunities to the brave men and women who serve and protect our country, added Masluk. We are proud to partner with Easter Seals Dixon Center and support their vision of a world where our nations veterans can thrive where they live.
