Global Head of Research, Corporate and Investment Bank, J.P. Morgan
When it comes to building diversity in the financial services industry, attracting more women is half the battle. That's a problem Joyce Chang is working to solve by holding more recruiting events that are focused on women, particularly for the research division, which she leads. Her goal is to have a 50% female staff in research globally.
Chang hosted a networking event in Washington, D.C., last December that attracted more than 100 female applicants from 14 universities in the area, many coming from a public policy background. She's involved in efforts to organize "boot camp" sessions for nonfinance majors joining the company and to provide media training for women to improve their public speaking skills. She's also helped to launch a mentoring program for women in the research division. Chang was promoted to head of research in the spring of 2014.
Outside of the office, Chang has organized the annual Women in Fixed Income conference held by the Fixed Income Analyst Society and she serves on the board of directors at the nonprofit Girls Inc. She's also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Council for Urban Professionals.
