Diversity Governance

Diversity Leadership

TD President and CEO Ed Clark and the Senior Executive Team play direct roles in driving TD’s diversity agenda. Each diversity priority has its own senior executive lead.

2009 Diversity Governance Highlights

  • We published six intranet articles featuring a Diversity Leadership Council member talking about their own diversity priority area. Each executive shared insights on the personal significance of their priority area and updated employees on current TD initiatives. Using an online blog, employees entered into the dialogue and were able to post their own comments on the featured articles.
  • In the U.S., 2009 has been a year for establishing our diversity governance structure and conducting research.

Diversity Policy and Management Systems

TD has a comprehensive policy framework to support our diversity program:

Our Workplace Accommodation Policy outlines TD’s commitment to accommodate employee needs in a wide range of areas. This includes time away or time off for observance of religious practices. We also provide flexible work options and accommodate a wide range of disabilities in the workplace.
