BOSTONJan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the company's ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, BNY Mellon has been named the 2012 Champion of Inclusion by Best Buddies, a nonprofit organization that creates one-to-one friendships and integrated employment opportunities for people with intellectual differences.

"When I first began as the State Director of Best Buddies Massachusetts, our Jobs Program served 28 participants throughout Boston and now, just four short years later, we are serving more than 70.  None of this would have been possible without the support of BNY Mellon," said Craig Welton , State Director of Best Buddies Massachusetts.  "BNY Mellon was the first private funder of our Jobs Program inMassachusetts, and with their investment, we've been able to substantially expand each year.  There is no doubt that our affiliation with BNY Mellon lends immediate credibility to our programs and has allowed us to attract other sizeable investments and support for our very important mission."
