A message from our presenting sponsor
BMO is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2022 Women of Influence Global Leaders Dinner – Toronto; connecting influential thought leaders, driving meaningful conversation and exchanging powerful insights to shape best practices for the next generation.
Serving customers for 200 years and counting, BMO is a highly diversified financial services provider and the 8th largest bank, by assets, in North America. We are committed to supporting initiatives that empower women within our workforce and the communities the bank serves.
In 2020, we introduced a five-year strategy, Zero Barriers to Inclusion 2025, aimed at eliminating barriers to inclusion and increasing diversity goals for senior leader and executive roles. The strategy sets bold goals within the bank to ensure equitable access to career development opportunities for women who identify as BIPOC, 2SLGBTQ+ and persons with disabilities. Earlier this year, BMO earmarked $5 Billion in capital over the next 5 years to support the growth of women-owned businesses across Canada. This builds on the commitment of $2 billion made in 2014 and $3 billion made in 2018. Additionally, we offer educational tools and articles on, bmoforwomen.com, and share stories of and for women who stand out on our podcast series, Bold(h)er.
BMO is transforming public policy conversations about women entrepreneurs, their risk awareness and appetite for innovation by supporting research that drives action to address funding imbalances and dispel stereotypes.
Join the conversation. #BMOforWomen
