Royal Bank of Canada, or RBC, is one of Out Leadership’s most long-standing members, having joined in 2013. RBC is dedicated to fostering emerging LGBTQ+ talent, having been a global sponsor for OutNEXT since 2019. Howard Sacarob (pictured below on right), the Head of U.S. Tax, VP and Managing Director at RBC spoke to the power of inclusion in business to our OutNEXT Global Cohort last summer, “We know from experience that bringing different voices and perspectives into the conversation at work results in better decisions, more productive business outcomes and advances the interests of all our stakeholders. It’s hard work. It requires a lot of attention, and it’s never perfect, but we keep at it.” Howard’s words ring true across our work– especially when it comes to developing the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders.
On that note… we are excited to announce that RBC is hosting our first-ever OutNEXT Session in Toronto on March 22! Members should mark their calendars, registration will be available soon.
