Diversity and Inclusion
Our most important investment is the one we make in our people.
We're for every future.
Imagine a world where everyone was exactly the same. No one would ever expand their horizons or consider new perspectives (and it would be pretty dull, if you ask us). We believe in a different kind of world – one where differences are celebrated. That’s the kind of environment you’ll find at Scotiabank.
Life at Scotiabank
Grow in an environment to thrive
Our most important investment is the one we make in our people. Our customer focus starts with taking care of our employees around the world. That’s why we work to grow and diversify talent and engage employees in a performance-oriented culture.
Employee Resource Groups
Scotiabank actively supports Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) – grassroots initiatives that celebrate our diversity and foster inclusion. ERGs span diverse gender identities, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, veterans and allies. By getting involved with grassroots initiatives we can all foster inclusion.
Scotiabank reaffirms commitment to inclusion for every future. We will always stand by our choice to be inclusive and kind.
