The Return to Bay Street Award is designed to help professional women re-launch their careers in the Canadian capital markets after an extended period of absence from the industry. WCM works with a broad group of Canadian financial institutions to offer this award and employment contract to qualified women, in preparation to re-launch a full-time career in the Canadian capital markets industry.
The initiative brings women who have taken time away from the industry back to rewarding careers in the capital markets. Over the past 2 years, this program has brought 12 women back to senior roles in the industry. The Return to Bay Street initiative was founded in 2012 with BMO Capital Markets as a partner through its Equity Through Education Program. Support for the program has only continued to grow. In 2013, we added new partners: National Bank Financial, RBC Capital Markets and Scotiabank. This year, CIBC and TD have joined our efforts. All involved agree that the Return to Bay Street program has created a valuable pipeline of talent for senior roles in capital markets.
