RBC is proud to join thousands of organizations around the world in recognizing the contributions of women on International Women's Day, March 8th. We believe that achieving gender equity is both the smart thing and the right thing to do, and key to the success of our company and our world. In celebration of this special day, we asked some of our many successful women leaders across RBC's global businesses to share their inspiring stories and advice on building an exciting, fulfilling career in the financial services industry.
For more information on RBC's efforts to advance women in the workplace, the marketplace and the communities we serve, we encourage you to check out the RBC Diversity Blueprint™ or visit the Community & Sustainability section of this site.
