Commitment to diversityOur long history and international reach have given us a strong appreciation and respect for diversity and inclusion and as part of that commitment we continually review, expand and enhance our programs and practices. Scotiabank Pride, an employee-founded and led resource group for LGBT and allies, both contributes to and reflects the diversity within Scotiabank. Scotiabank Pride increases awareness of LGBT matters and promotes employee development while at the same time members provide valued insight to build business and community relationships within the LGBT market.
Vision for the futureA culture of inclusion is the heart of our global community of Scotiabankers where we value individual talents, perspectives and innovative thinking. Our values of integrity, respect, insight, spirit and commitment inform and complement this approach and enable career growth.
I am very proud of the contribution that Scotiabank Pride makes to the Scotiabank community. The dedicated members of this group thoughtfully represent LGBT interests and I thank them for their commitment. By celebrating our unique strengths and recognizing the power of diversity and inclusion, Scotiabank will continue to grow and innovate and that benefits our employees, customers and the communities around us.
