Champion & Founding Partner
As Canada’s International Bank, Scotiabank is committed to diversity, including diversity of thought, experience, gender, culture, race, religion and sexual orientation at every decision-making table, in all settings across the Bank. The Bank serves 24 million customers globally with employees speaking more than 100 languages and hailing from over 120 countries.
We believe that we are stronger because of our differences, not in spite of them. We strive to create an inclusive space where everyone feels safe and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work.
We are strong supporters of LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace and in the community wherever we operate. This commitment is the driving force behind the Bank’s support for organizations such as LGBT in Capital Markets, of which, we are a founding member. We also support Pride Connection (Global), Start Proud, Pride at Work Canada, Canadian Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC), the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), EGALE, The 519, You Can Play, etc.
We recognize that diversity and LGBT+ inclusion looks different around the world. However, our global footprint gives us a unique opportunity to lead, fostering safe spaces for LGBT+ employees and customers, driving positive changes in the communities in which we operate, and championing equal rights for all from the inside out.
