TD Bank Partners With IFC To Launch Inclusive Banking Report

TD Bank ranked No. 14 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021.

 

TD Bank has partnered with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to launch their Inclusive Banking report, joining other leading international banks and financial institutions.

“Persons with disabilities are critical to building stronger economies, and there is a business case for their inclusion. Discrimination on the grounds of disability — including failure to ensure equal access to employment and financial services — violates universal human rights, but also harms business performance and economic growth,” IFC said. “Failure to address discrimination and exclusion may cost some economies as much as seven percent of GDP.”

“IFC is working with banks, companies and investors to advance the economic inclusion of persons with disability as corporate leaders, employees, entrepreneurs, consumers and stakeholders.”

TD is one of the many banks in the industry leading the way to increase employment opportunities and access to financial services for persons with disabilities.
