That’s why we’ve implemented and continue to support a number of initiatives to attract the industry’s most talented women advisors to our firm, and leave a legacy for more than just their clients.
The Women’s Advisory Board (WAB), established in 2009, is a forum for women advisors across Wealth Management Canada that is committed to diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, and helping women empower each other to achieve their professional goals.
Through the IA leave program, a first in the Canadian investment industry, advisors can take time away from their business with the peace of mind that their book of clients will be managed by a colleague in their absence. The freedom to focus on what matters most is ingrained in everything we do at RBC.
We also believe strongly in personal growth and nurturing curiosity. Through the RBC Wealth Management mentorship program, you have the opportunity to learn from senior peers on how to navigate your careers, build your business, and share your experiences with advisors who are new to the industry.
Every other year, the WAB organizes a Women’s Symposium which is a networking opportunity for women advisors and teams and a forum for sharing ideas and best practices to help teams take their businesses to the next level.
We also look for opportunities to help women in our communities grow. Together with the Women’s Brain Initiative (WBHI), RBC Wealth Management Canada created the Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise client event series to raise awareness of the brain aging diseases affecting women and the importance of having a financial plan for the future. Over 500 women have participated since 2016, helping to shed light on this issue, and allowing our advisors to offer an unmatched experience to their female clients.
Through all of these initiatives and more, we believe that fostering a collaborative, value-based culture of inclusivity and integrity means we can meet new challenges together, help create a purposeful and prosperous future for our communities and grow more than wealth for our clients.
And while your role with RBC Dominion Securities will be to preserve the legacies of your clients for generations to come, the opportunity is here to establish your own.
“The best part of the IA leave program is that it gave me the flexibility to look after my family with the peace of mind that my clients were being well taken care of.”
