In recent media appearances and publications, John Hope Bryant has been making the case for The Business Plan for America, explaining the critical role that diversity plays in our economic structure and our future as a global superpower. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives don’t displace qualified workers in a given field. Rather it ensures that the best talent is sourced from a broader pool. They’re not a drain — rather, it is R & D for our nation.


At Operation HOPE, financial literacy is personal to us because we understand the critical role it plays in empowering individuals and communities.

Therefore, we have launched a “Campaign for America” in which every American can advance financial literacy for themselves and their communities. We believe that everyone can do something – where they live, learn, work or play – to improve their own financial future or help someone else with theirs.
