Not disclosed - Bank 2019 N/A https://am.jpmorgan.com/blob-gim/1383683505205/83456/JPM52791_JPMAM_ESG_Integration_Brochure.pdf

In September 2019, our analyst met with the CEO of a Russian bank and questioned the lack of gender diversity on the board. The CEO was receptive to this conversation and agreed to take it into consideration.
During a follow-up meeting with the CEO in November 2019, the CEO confirmed that the bank had committed to female representation in the upcoming round of board appointments and that it was actively interviewing for the position.
The bank has since appointed the first female member to its board.
This is an example of how, though we do not have voting rights as bond investors, we can still have a meaningful positive influence on the business practices of our portfolio companies.
