Building Pride at TD: 10 Years and Counting
A decade ago , as on of the first banks to launch a targeted LGBT effort, TD took a bold stance. We wrapped ourselves in the rainbow flag and were very “out” about it. Today, TD is recognized for its support of the LGBT population:
- In our workplace, diversity and inclusion is a way of life, where people can bring their whole selves to work – and ultimately, be more productive. The large the number of people who have come out at work, sometimes before telling their families has been a true mark of our progress.
- In our communities, TD is involved with over 100 LGBT organization and initiatives across North America. We are a highly visible supporter, which includes sponsoring WorldPride 2014 in Toronto.
- For LGBTA Customers, we want them to feel comfortable doing business with us, that they see themselves reflected in our staff, in our ads and in our services.
We won’t let up in our efforts to keep diversity and inclusion part of the TD Culture. Despite growing acceptance of the LGBTA movement, there is much work to do. So we must stay vigilant in our tolerance of intolerance, and continue to breakdown barriers for LGBT people everywhere.
