Inclusion at Scotiabank

A culture of inclusion is the heart of our global community of Scotiabankers

As Canada’s international bank, we’re a leader when it comes to inclusion. Scotiabankers hail from over 120 countries, speak more than 100 languages and serve over 23 million customers globally. As a highly diverse company, we know that an inclusive environment for employees and customers helps everyone achieve their best.

An inclusive workplace allows us to reap the benefits that diversity brings: new perspectives, fresh ideas and the ability to compete at our best in a global market. Inclusion is deeply rooted in our organization and entrenched in everything we do.

  • Through our people: we welcome a variety of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. This allows us to better understand our customers, our co-workers and helps us achieve our key priorities.
  • Through our practices: We create an environment that appreciates and leverages diversity to innovate, motivate and build our performance-oriented culture.

Embracing a culture of inclusion wherever we operate, not only makes Scotiabank a great place for our customers to do business, it also makes it a great place to work. When our customers and employees can achieve their best, that ultimately helps make our business results even better.
