RBC Rated As A 'Best Place To Work For LGBT Equality' By The Human Rights Campaign

Company achieves 100 percent on annual Corporate Equality Index rating

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) announced today that RBC Wealth Management-U.S. and RBC Capital Markets-U.S. received a 100 percent rating from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) for its 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), and is recognized as one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality." The CEI rating annually recognizes companies with policies and procedures that support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. RBC received this honour based on a joint submission from the RBC Wealth Management-U.S. and RBC Capital Markets businesses.

"We are proud to have earned HRC's highest Corporate Equality Index rating for the third year," said John Taft, CEO, RBC Wealth Management-U.S. and executive sponsor of the RBC Gay, Lesbian, Allied and Diverse Employees (GLADE) employee resource group (ERG) for RBC Wealth Management-U.S. "This rating recognizes all that we do to support diversity and inclusion both within the company and the communities where we live and work."

"We are honoured to receive this esteemed rating, alongside several of our clients and business partners who value diversity," said Deborah Freer, U.S. Chief Operating Officer of RBC Capital Markets and Executive Sponsor of RBC Capital Markets' PRIDE Employee Resource Group. "This recognition underscores RBC's commitment to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace where employees can reach their full potential and best serve our clients, shareholders and communities."

As an advocate for equal employment opportunities, RBC maintains a workplace that embraces diversity and inclusion. The company provides benefits to employees' opposite and same sex domestic partners and introduced transgender benefits in 2012. In addition, the company supports both national and local organizations that serve the LGBT community through sponsorships, grants and the employee matching gift program.
