Scotiabank Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (or ERGs) are groups of Scotiabankers who share a common interest, background or goal. They are the grassroots voice of our people, amplifying our diversity. ERGs provide a way to connect with others, share experiences and discuss issues that are important to you. They’re also an excellent way to network with Scotiabankers who you might not typically meet.

Scotiabank employees have the opportunity to join one of our 10 Employee Resource Groups:
