Shining a light on workplaces that work for women
This International Women's Day we're lighting up the sky to show our commitment to advancing
women in business
International Women's Day is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all women. It is also a time to reflect on our progress in creating greater career opportunities for women. To shine a light on our commitment to advancing women in business, TD teamed up with Catalyst, a global nonprofit focused on empowering and accelerating women in business. Together with other companies, we're lighting up the TD Tower – and the city's skyline – with the red female symbol to share the message that ours is a workplace that works for women.
"We've made great progress at TD in creating a workplace culture that champions inclusion and diversity for all our colleagues, including helping propel women's success at every stage of their career," says Norie Campbell, Group Head Customer & Colleague Experience and Chair of Women in Leadership at TD Bank Group. "At the same time, we still have a lot of opportunity to attract more women into our industry and to nurture an environment in which they can be their best."
TD has made good headway in increasing representation of women in leadership roles across the bank, including in traditionally male-oriented areas. By listening to women and what they need to develop their careers, TD has developed relevant programs for people at all stages in their professional lives. For example, women early in their careers asked for more guidance to help them understand how to move ahead. TD responded by establishing a number of mentoring and development programs, engaging thousands of women in conversation, and learning.
"I'm inspired by the accomplishments of my female colleagues across the bank, and energized by our shared commitment to achieving even more together," said Campbell.
