Representation goals

BMO is committed to ensuring our workplace is an inclusive one, with zero barriers, in which employees feel they belong and are valued, respected and heard. Removing barriers ensures an equitable employee experience, with access to development and career advancement for our employees.

Diversity goals

In 2020, BMO announced ambitious representation goals, directly addressing gaps in representation across our organization and the financial services industry, to continue to live our Purpose, to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life, and in pursuit of our Bold Commitment to supporting an inclusive society with zero barriers.

Our strategy includes continued progress on gender equality, a strong focus on ensuring Black and Latino talent has equitable access to development and advancement opportunities, and a continued emphasis on recruitment, development, and retention of Indigenous employees in Canada.

Representations goals come into effect November 1, 2020 with the new fiscal year and conclusion of the current fiscal’s measures.
