Welcome to Capital One
At Capital One, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging are valued at our core, sparking innovation and enabling us to do good for our associates, customers and communities. We attract and develop talent from all backgrounds and experiences, and we empower our associates to do great work by creating a culture of belonging that values diverse perspectives, fosters collaboration and encourages innovative ideas.
Capital One Canada has received the Employment Equity Achievement Award (EEAA) every year since 2017. The EEAA recognizes outstanding achievement in employment equity in the workplace.
In 2019, Capital One Canada won Canada’s Best Diversity Employer Award and the Great Places to Work Canada Award for the Best Workplaces Managed by Women. Both of these awards are testaments to the focus put on Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging throughout the organization in 2019.
Over the years, Diversity and Inclusion efforts at Capital One have evolved significantly, resulting in an enterprise-wide Diversity and Inclusion strategy that promotes Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) for all associates. We want our associate population to be representative of the workforce where we do business. To get there and ensure all associates feel included and that they belong, in 2019 Capital One refined its enterprise-wide Diversity and Inclusion strategy to focus on three areas:
- 1. Create a culture of belonging through people leadership
- 2. Enable data transparency
- 3. Infuse Diversity and Inclusion across the associate lifecycle
To ensure we continue to make progress on our goals and strategy, Capital One Canada has a Diversity Council which is comprised of the Canada Executive Team as well as Accountable Executives from our Business Resource Groups (BRGs). In addition to the Diversity Council, Capital One has an established Associate Consultation Forum (ACF) made up of BRG leaders and key Diversity and Inclusion partners from across the business.
