Women in Finance Charter

In February 2017, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) signed the Women in Finance Charter to support the progression of women to senior roles and recognize the importance of gender equality across financial services organisations in the UK. The Charter reflects the UK Government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across the financial services industry.The requirements of the Charter for signatories are as follows:

  • Having a senior executive team member responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion
  • Internal targets for gender diversity in senior roles
  • Publish progress annually against these targets in reports on their website
  • Ensuring pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these targets

RBC has committed to an initial target of 25% of female representation at senior roles by 2020. This applies to all businesses and locations across the British Isles.

Diversity & Inclusion for innovation and growth is one of RBC’s core Values and sits at the heart of the firm’s culture. A culture of inclusion is vital to the continued success of RBC’s business and the leadership team is fully committed to driving equality for all employees regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or age.
