Talent and Workplace

People are the most important asset of any organization and fully leveraging the potential of our people is critical to our competitive success. As a major employer, RBC can provide opportunities and experiences that lead to personal, professional and financial success for our employees.

In order to increase the diversity and inclusion of our workforce globally, we must create equitable opportunities for all employees regardless of race, age, gender, physical/mental abilities, sexual orientation, religion and backgrounds. Making diversity work requires the visible engagement of leaders who can profile issues, champion solutions and lead new approaches.



Women make valued contributions in all walks of life yet continue to be under-represented in leadership roles. Women represent an important and growing market segment. We are committed to attracting and retaining talented women, developing and advancing women into leadership roles, providing financial services to meet the needs of women and women entrepreneurs and supporting initiatives that address the needs of women in our communities.

Minorities and Newcomers to Canada

RBC has a longstanding history of supporting new immigrants to Canada. The population of new Canadians and minorities is growing and much of our future growth in Canada will depend on the success of these communities. Yet, minorities continue to be under-represented in leadership roles and can face systemic barriers to advancement. We believe for Canada to succeed in the global marketplace, attracting, employing and fully integrating immigrants in our workforce is imperative. RBC is proud to be an employer of choice for newcomers and will continue to work to fully engage the diversity of our entire workforce.

In addition, we seek to be the financial institution of choice for newcomers to Canada and are committed to making it easier for newcomers to get established financially.


Active Leaders

Proactive, visible and engaged leaders drive change. We believe an active group of diversity leaders will accelerate the achievement of our diversity goals through their direct actions, their own development and by inspiring others.
