Scotiabank has long been committed to board diversity and has taken great strides to achieve it. We first adopted a board diversity policy in 2013, setting out our gender diversity goals but also defining diversity broadly across a range of characteristics.

But there are other equally important ways that companies can contribute in order to support women, their careers and their ascension to boards.
