Carleton Announces $1- Million Donation From RBC To Support The Carleton Centre For Research And Education On Women And Work

OTTAWA, March 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Carleton University today announced a $1 million, 10-year commitment from RBC to the Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work (CREWW) at the Sprott School of Business to continue its important work on diversity and the advancement of women in the workplace.

RBC has a longstanding relationship supporting CREWW, which was launched in 1992 to facilitate and disseminate cutting-edge research on women and the workplace, build bridges to the community and offer innovative programs to develop Canadian business leaders.

The funds will contribute to new research on workplace diversity to better understand the obstacles that may be keeping employees from reaching their full potential. The donation will also support a distance education program delivered by Carleton's Management Development Program for Women (MDPW) and a speakers' series on women in management, with additional support for another leadership lecture series at the Sprott School of Business.

"We are grateful to RBC for its valuable support and leadership," said Carleton President Roseann O'Reilly Runte. "This program profoundly influences the lives and careers of these students, enabling their professional advancement and a significant impact on regional and national economic development."

"RBC is proud to make this $1 million commitment to the Carleton Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work and we are confident that with this donation, the Centre will strengthen the advancement of women in the workplace," said Zabeen Hirji, Chief Human Resources Officer, RBC. "We believe that achieving gender equality is both the smart thing and the right thing to do, and this focus has made us a more competitive, relevant organization for our clients and employees, and a better corporate citizen for the communities we serve."

"Working with business to make a difference in our community is a key goal of the Centre," said Lorraine Dyke, Director of CREWW and a Sprott faculty member. "RBC is a leader on gender and diversity issues and it is a privilege to be able to continue to partner with such a progressive organization on this important work of breaking down barriers."

Today's donation is part of the RBC's recognition of International Women's Day. RBC is a strong advocate of women entrepreneurs, women in leadership, women in public life and those in community leadership. The bank is also committed to advancing the cause of women both in their workplace and in their communities.
