JRF Alumna Sharae Moultrie ('12) mobilized her colleagues at JPMorgan Chase’s minority affinity group, known as BOLD, to sponsor a special viewing on October 1st of Legendary Pictures/Warner Bros’ acclaimed film “42,” written and directed by Brian Helgeland. Prior to the screening, Sharae shared her personal story of the impact the Foundation has had on her life and career. Describing how the Foundation prepared her for the rigors of working in the financial sector, the University of South Carolina graduate told the crowd, "I would not be where I am today had it not been for the Jackie Robinson Foundation."
JRF Vice President and Chief Historian Dr. Yohuru Williams addressed the group as well, providing context for the movie by extolling Jackie Robinson’s barrier-breaking feats both on and off the field and highlighting the Hall of Famer's direct influence in business and in the civil rights movement.
Sharae is a participant in JPMorgan Chase's Corporate Analyst Development Program, designed to develop well-rounded leaders with the core skills needed for a variety of business-aligned roles within the firm.
"It is gratifying to witness our alumni assuming leadership roles and sharing their JRF experiences with their communities and co-workers, confirming the impact the Foundation has had on their lives." said President and CEO Della Britton Baeza. "As ambassadors of Jackie Robinson's enduring legacy, many alumni go on to support our mission ensuring opportunities for those who will follow in their footsteps."
