The future of banking STEMS from the students of today
Did you know? The first text message was sent 25 years ago, completely revolutionizing the way we communicate. What technology innovations will revolutionize our lives next?
While we don't know what the next major breakthrough will be, we know it's in the hands of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) leaders of tomorrow. It's clear that STEM skills are playing a critical role in the development of Canada's innovation economy, and that includes the financial industry. That's why TD is committed to helping encourage and provide more access to STEM programming across the country.
On the heels of the recent announcement that TD is investing in the future of Canadian data and analytics talent, TD announced a sponsorship with Actua to further support the development of STEM skills among Canadians. Actua's national programming focuses on engaging youth with socioeconomic challenges, and under-represented groups, including Indigenous youth and females.
