Vera Moore is a Market Manager on the Community Engagement team under the Corporate Responsibility umbrella at JPMorgan Chase.
Vera has been an advocate for communities of color and low- and moderate-income communities her entire career. A courageous corporate leader, Vera fosters a culture of inclusion by ensuring voices and perspectives of nonprofit leaders, and the communities they serve, are reflected as Chase makes decisions about its products, services, and philanthropy. Vera had a significant role in the firm’s commitment to invest $75 million toward philanthropy over five years in the Bay Area through its AdvancingCities initiative — a five-year, $500 million effort to create greater economic opportunity nationwide. Before that, she proactively engaged tenant advocacy organizations and nonprofits from across the region in a series of constructive conversations around the ongoing challenges of affordability and widening racial inequity for Black and Latinx communities in San Francisco and Oakland. Vera employed a similar approach to incorporating community voice into Chase’s philanthropic and business COVID-19 relief efforts. She has also used her platform at Chase to amplify concerns about anti-Asian racism, xenophobia, and its impact on Asian entrepreneurs and other entrepreneurs of color.
