Diversity & Inclusion

Derek Neldner

Diversity & Inclusion isn’t just a value at RBC; it is a driver of better outcomes for our clients and a stronger, more engaged culture for our employees. It is important that we continue to focus on recruiting, retaining and advancing a diverse employee base – ensuring our team reflects the global clients we serve is a clear competitive advantage and helps foster perspectives that challenge conventional approaches to conducting business.

Diversity Leadership Councils (DLCs)

The Diversity Leadership Councils (“DLCs”) across all of our regions are committed to embedding Diversity and Inclusion in the DNA of RBC Capital Markets. DLCs determine key goals and ensure specific initiatives are implemented to address the needs of Capital Markets employees, clients and communities in which we operate.

Career Development

Diversity and inclusion is engrained in every aspect of the RBC Capital Markets recruitment process beginning with how we attract and proactively search for talent to when we onboard our new employees and ensure they have the tools to be successful. An inclusive workplace, which includes recruiting and developing persons with disabilities, veterans, women, minorities and LGBT+ individuals, is a commitment we take seriously as we strive to accelerate full inclusion.
