JPMorgan Chase & Co. scrubbed its bylaws of gender designations as pressure grows from both society and investors on global businesses to show they are diversifying and becoming more inclusive.

The largest U.S. bank swapped the use of “chairman” with “chair” and also switched out “his,” “him” and “her” pronouns with non-gender specific terms. It used chief executive officer to replace he, for example, in its revised bylaws issued on March 16.
