TD leaders named among Canada's Most Powerful Women
Every year, the Women's Executive Network (WXN) releases a ranking of Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women to celebrate the accomplishments of female leaders who have advanced the professional landscape for future generations.
TD's own Norie Campbell, Group Head, Customer and Colleague Experience and Chair of TD's Women in Leadership initiative, and Sue Cummings, Executive Vice President, Human Resources, were among this year's recipients.
Helping women achieve the rewards of a fulfilling career and working tirelessly to create a workplace culture that champions inclusion and diversity and the success of all colleagues are just a few of the reasons why Norie and Sue were selected.
"To me, one of the best ways we can show that we're powerful women is by paying it forward -- sharing knowledge and offering advice and counsel in formal and everyday ways. That's why promoting women in leadership has long been a passion for me. There are many ways in which we can take the lead and be advocates of other women: from celebrating their achievements to being champions of their talent and potential; from providing the necessary tools and resources that will help them achieve their goals to providing access to new opportunities and greater profile."
Norie Campbell, Group Head, Customer and Colleague Experience
"One of TD's Shared Commitments – the principles that help guide our behaviour and shape our future – focuses on developing our colleagues and embracing diversity. Being a woman of power is to role model this behaviour by being actively engaged in helping colleagues push past their personal and societal barriers that stand in the way of them reaching their career aspirations. We have a number of different programs, including mentorship, sponsorship and development programs to support not just women but all colleagues. At the core is creating a culture and the right environment for people so they feel comfortable being true to themselves.
Sue Cummings, Executive Vice President, Human Resources
