RBC supports several LGBT ERGs globally, including: RBC GLADE, (1999), RBC PRIDE Canada (2006), RBC PRIDE Capital Markets (2011), and RBC GLOBE UK (2011). All groups have a mission to create a welcoming and open working environment that allows LGBT employees to achieve their full potential.
The 2014 CEI rated 934 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including: non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community. RBC's efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria resulted in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a 'Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.'
