“Jon’s expertise will help us deliver innovative solutions that drive our ambitious DEI mission forward and increase our impact inside Booz Allen, with our clients, and across our communities,” said Aimee George Leary, executive vice president at Booz Allen.

Booz Allen’s commitment to advancing racial and social equity is based on a six-pillar agenda, which includes: an independent review of how the firm’s business practices impact Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC); increasing personal time and space for reflection and mental health; increasing BIPOC representation at all levels of the firm; increasing learning opportunities on DEI for all employees; using the firm’s voice and capabilities to advance racial and social equity; and making racial and social equity a major element of the firm’s corporate philanthropy.

Muñoz added, “I look forward to partnering with leaders across the firm to create the experiences, practices, and standards that will help Booz Allen’s talented workforce thrive as we work together to listen, learn, and act with purpose toward a better future.”
