TD Bank, in its fourth year on the list, continues to give personalized attention to each employee’s needs while holding leaders accountable for results.
The bank has emphasized building a talent pipeline through its employee resource groups (ERGs), making good progress in its Latinos in Leadership and African American & Caribbean Leadership ERGs.
President and CEO Mike Pedersen has asked his direct reports to serve as executive sponsors to each of TD’s Diversity Subcommittees. The executive sponsors work closely with Executive Vice President Linda Verba and the Diversity Leadership Team to ensure alignment to strategic business goals and keep the conversation going at the CEO leadership table.
With an enterprise-wide diversity and inclusion approach that has three strategic pillars — Workplace, Workforce and Marketplace — TD’s numbers, especially for women in management, demonstrate its progress.
