Companies Have Shared More Than 600 Actions That They Are Taking to Advance Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

CHERRY HILL, NJ – May 30, 2019 – TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank, joins the growing coalition pledging to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. One of more than 600 CEOs that have come together for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, Greg Braca is committing himself and TD Bank to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

By signing on to this commitment, TD Bank is pledging, on behalf of itself and its US affiliates, to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected, and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.

The coalition of more than 600 signatories have already shared their best known actions, exchanging tangible learning opportunities and creating collaborative conversations via the initiative’s unified hub, CEOAction.com.

“We are very excited to join the ranks of more than 600 other leading brands in working to ensure that diversity and inclusion is a workplace priority,” said Greg Braca, President and CEO. “Diversity and inclusion are core values at TD. It is part of who we are and everything we do. And today it’s never been more important.”

One of TD’s priorities is to provide opportunities for its people managers and employees to have serious dialogue about what makes its employee base unique and valuable assets to the brand. Through employee listening, the Bank continually improves its procedures and processes of day-to-day business operations to ensure fairness and equal access for all its employees, which aligns with the coalition’s mission to showcase real-life examples of open and transparent conversations to cultivate more diverse and inclusive workplace environments.

The CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ is led by a steering committee of CEOs and leaders from Accenture, BCG, Deloitte US, The Executive Leadership Council, EY, General Atlantic, KPMG, New York Life, Procter & Gamble, and PwC. The coalition represents 85 industries, all 50 US States, and millions of employees globally.

“We are so proud that we are continuing to build momentum and support for the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ across companies, industries, and regions. This collaboration expands our reach and brings in unique values, actions and perspectives to continue to raise the bar for the entire business community,” said Tim Ryan, U.S. Chairman and Senior Partner of PwC and chair of the steering committee for the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™. “The overwhelming support for the coalition has been amazing to see and with each and every new organization signing on, we have the opportunity to put our commitments into action by working together to improve diversity and inclusion in our workplaces and communities.”
