Brown, a nationally recognized leader in diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) and engagement, joined MUFG to elevate and enhance the bank’s I&D efforts in the Americas. She will be based in Charlotte, NC, and report to Amy Ward, chief human resources officer for the Americas at MUFG. Brown will lead the I&D team and provide direction and support to MUFG’s executive I&D council. She will also serve as a link between MUFG’s enterprise resource groups and business unit I&D councils to drive further success on diversity commitments.
Brown joined MUFG from Wells Fargo, where she held leadership roles for the past two decades. Her diverse background includes strategy, transformation and program development for various workforce, marketplace and social impact and sustainability initiatives. She was most recently senior vice president and lead external engagement strategist for diverse segments, representation and inclusion and was responsible for building strategic frameworks and solutions to advance Wells Fargo’s DE&I efforts.
“Okeatta has demonstrated a passion for service and community stewardship throughout her career, and we welcome her dedication and enthusiasm as we work to further enhance and advance our inclusion and diversity initiatives at MUFG,” Ward said. “Our brand identity centers on our commitment to serving our colleagues, clients and society through forming long-term relationships and together building a brighter future, and we look forward to Okeatta joining us on that mission.”
