Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'I am heartbroken by what happened to George Floyd,' Matthew Meade, 36, a vice president who works in risk management at the bank, wrote to his team in an email viewed by Business Insider. 'When I think of George, it is no longer a matter of if what happened was wrong or right,' Meade added. 'It's not about black versus white, it's about America versus racism.' Meade, who is currently pursuing an executive MBA at the NYU Stern School of Business, has spent nearly 10 years working at JPMorgan. In recent years, he's taken on a number of roles, at work and in his personal life, to improve the experiences of other young people of color. Later this month, he'll unpack some of those topics in 'Wisdom On the Way to Wall Street: 22 Steps to Navigate Your Road to Success,' his forthcoming book, which Meade will self-publish on August 22."
