In addition to company-wide priorities, individual business platforms and regions across RBC have diversity priorities reflective of the needs and opportunities that are particularly aligned to these business groups and/or geographic regions. Business units include: Personal & Commercial Banking, Capital Markets, Insurance, Wealth Management, Technology & Operations, and Functions. Here are some of their key diversity & inclusion prioriites:
The success of RBC depends on the success of our clients. We recognize the impact of diversity on the success of our business and believe that our clients can also achieve further success through fostering diversity and inclusion within their own businesses. For this reason, RBC seeks to add further value to our business client relationships through the sharing our diversity knowledge and resources, and the results of our experiences and partnerships.
As purchasers of goods and services, large companies like RBC can have a significant economic impact in the markets where we do business. Overall, our goal is to offer women and minority-owned suppliers the opportunity to increase or enhance sales to RBC and enhance the value of purchases we make with women and minority-owned businesses, especially in our major markets.
