Chime’s Ongoing Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

By Chime Team
July 29, 2020

At Chime, we believe that, by taking action, we can work together to make the world a better place.

Last month, Chris, our CEO, wrote a blog post to share some of the things we’re doing in our efforts to continue supporting diversity at Chime, with a recent focus on ways to take tangible action for the Black community.

In June, Chime and our community donated $250,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). We picked EJI because of how directly their initiatives aligned with the experiences recently shared by our own community – by both challenging racial and economic injustice and protecting basic human rights.

This is not a moment. This is a movement.

There’s a lot more to be done. And as we work through different initiatives to support diversity and inclusion, we have a responsibility to use our platforms and resources to bring visibility and start conversations around these topics.

It’s not possible for any of us to have the exact same background, upbringing, culture, or education — yet these factors directly affect how we see and manage money. And understanding how these differences contribute to your perspective can help you become more financially savvy. Now more than ever, it’s important that the Chime community is a place where people feel they can speak up, share their unique stories, and know they will be heard. 

A crucial part of our mission has always been to empower our community with financial educational resources so they have everything they need to make the best financial decisions possible and achieve financial peace of mind. We want to bring light to this truth simply by talking about these real topics in a range of human ways. That’s why we’re going to start exploring the relationship between diversity and money by covering more topics related to money, bias, diversity and  — with the help of financial psychologists and experts in the field  — uncover the impact of all of these factors on the way we manage our money and how we can be better and continue to bring more awareness to these topics and promote change through the power of information.
