A Message from our CEO and President

Dave McKay

Diversity and growth are not just integrated, but inseparable. This belief is at the heart of RBC’s Value of “Diversity & Inclusion – We embrace diversity for innovation and growth.” For us, diversity has long been a gateway to the world and to success. At a time of both challenges and opportunities in the world, rather than turn inward, we believe that there’s a growing need to shine a light on diversity and inclusion.

— Dave McKay

Women in finance charter logo

In 2017, RBC signed the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter to support the progression of women to senior roles and recognise the importance of gender equality across financial services organizations in the UK. The Charter reflects the UK Government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across the financial services industry.

RBC's 2017 UK Gender Pay Report sets out our commitment to paying men and women the same for work of equal or equivalent value, explains gender differences in average pay and describes the actions we are taking to further the career development and progression of women.
