Removing anti-Black systemic barriers
CIBC is a signatory of the BlackNorth Initiative CEO Pledge, committing to the removal of anti-Black systemic barriers negatively affecting the lives of Black Canadians.
In 2016, CIBC became a signatory of the UK Women in Finance Charter — the first Canadian-headquartered bank to make the pledge. With this commitment, CIBC pledges at least 40% women in Board-approved executive roles by 2024 globally.
CIBC was the first Canadian bank to join the Valuable 500 campaign in 2019, dedicated to unlocking the business, social and economic value of people living with disabilities around the world. CIBC has committed to ensuring that by 2024, at least 9% of our workforce in Canada identify as persons with disabilities.
In 2019, CIBC added its support to #DearEverybody, a national movement led by Holland Bloorview to end stigma and challenge biases surrounding disability. This includes addressing the lack of representation of persons with disabilities in advertising and media.
The majority of Canadian women are either the primary or joint financial decision-makers in their households, yet our CIBC poll shows that only half feel confident or knowledgeable about their financial skills.
